ZDHC Committed Community Announcement October 2023

As of October 2023, we welcome three new ZDHC Signatories to the ZDHC Committed Community.

As a ZDHC Signatory Brand

ANTA Sport was established in 1991, while ANTA Sports Products Limited, a widely recognized global sportswear company, was listed on the Main Board of HKEx in 2007 (Stock code: 2020.HK). For many years, ANTA Sports has been principally engaged in the design, R&D, manufacturing, marketing and sales of professional sports products including shoes, apparel and accessories to Chinese consumers. By embracing an all-round brand portfolio including ANTA, FILA, DESCENTE and KOLON SPORT, and by setting up an investor consortium to successfully acquire Amer Sports in 2019, a global sportswear group that has internationally recognized brands including Arc’teryx, Salomon, Wilson, Peak Performance, Atomic, etc. ANTA Sports aims to unlock the potential of both the mass and high-end sportswear markets. ZDHC standards complete ANTA's chemical management system on the input, process and output ends. And it provides us the tools to track and improve our chemical management performance. 

We are so excited to join ZDHC as a signatory and the largest sports brand from China. We hope that we can join other industry peers in the world with good practices and sharing the same vision to make some positive impact together.

Sustainable Chemistry for the Textile Industry (SCTI)

Sustainable Chemistry for the Textile Industry (SCTI) is a not-for-profit organisation led by forerunner chemical companies with a mission to inspire and drive transformational changes in the textile and leather industry through sustainable chemistry. It has six founding members: Archroma, CHT Group, KISCO, Pulcra Chemicals, Rudolf Group and Tanatex Chemicals.

Our vision is for a textile and leather industry that produces more sustainable products for consumers through cleaner and more transparent supply chains that use less water and energy and produce less emissions and pollution. Whilst there is increasing recognition by the textile and apparel industry of the importance of sustainability, no one organisation can shift the existing industry paradigms on its own. ZDHC and SCTI share a common goal of widespread implementation of sustainable chemistry that will ultimately protect consumers, workers and the environment. With ZDHC’s well established platform, we believe we can advance the sustainability goals of the industry together and accelerate change. 

SCTI is proud to support ZDHC in its drive to bring about transformational change in the textile and leather industry through radical collaboration. As a ZDHC signatory, we will work alongside other members of the ZDHC community to champion convergence through shared goals, unified standards and market-leading innovation.
