Announcement

As of April 2022, we welcome one new contributor and one new friend to the ZDHC Community. 

As a Brand:

As a company focused on children’s products, The Children’s Place believes it is important that its business contributes to a healthy planet for the benefit of future generations. Joining the ZDHC Foundation’s Roadmap to Zero Programme enables The Children’s Place to join with industry peers to support the implementation of sustainable chemical management practices within the fashion value chain. By becoming a part of the ZDHC community, The Children’s Place intends to monitor wastewater testing and perform enhanced analyses on vendor chemical inventories to build a preferred chemicals engagement strategy.

“Our collaboration with [the] ZDHC [Foundation] is one of the steps we’re taking to promote safer manufacturing and do our part to contribute to more sustainable eco-systems.”

-Adrian Sherman, VP, Environment & Social Responsibility.

As a Friend:

CCC S.A. is one of the largest footwear retail companies in Central Europe. As the leader in footwear retail, CCC is a trendsetter in sustainable development, influencing the whole industry. CCC focuses on environmentally friendly production processes and efficiently uses natural resources. The company is also an active member of leading environmental associations. In 2021, the company introduced the Circular Economy Roadmap, setting the direction for its circularity.

CCC S.A. is setting further goals and targets. The company has pledged to review the environmental impact of its whole supply chain by 2025. CCC's ambition remains to increase transparency in its supply chain – 80% of its suppliers should implement their own environmental strategies by 2030.

The company had been awarded in numerous ESG competitions and had received great ratings for its efforts toward sustainable development.

“At CCC S.A., every single day we take another step towards sustainability. It is a commitment that we made in our Sustainability Strategy. Joining the ZDHC community is therefore a natural continuation for us of the strategic plans and changes that are already going on in our organization. By joining this initiative, we will not only implement best practices for sustainable chemical management but also support its initiators in fulfilling their goals - the elimination of dangerous substances from the global textile, leather, and apparel as well as footwear supply chain. We are proud that we can be part of this programme and together have a real impact on a positive change.”

-Daria Sulgostowska, Head of Sustainability in CCC Group.
