American & Efird (A&E), a leading manufacturer and distributor of industrial and consumer sewing thread, embroidery thread, and technical textiles, has officially joined the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Programme. A&E is proud to join over 20 leading brands working together to drive industry-wide change in responsible chemicals management.

A&E has a long history of leading the thread industry in the area of environmental sustainability. Last month, A&E released its annual corporate sustainability report highlighting continued improvements, specifically in global water use reduction and Zero-Waste-to-Landfill efforts. A&E supports the Programme’s vision of widespread implementation of sustainable chemistry and best practices in the textile and footwear industries to protect consumers, workers, and the environment.

Jimmy Summers, A&E vice president environmental, health and safety/sustainability said, “Being a part of the ZDHC Programme provides us the opportunity to share our knowledge and insights, partner and collaborate on issues with others in our industry, and improve our knowledge on sustainability, environmental, and chemical management issues. We believe it is very important to be actively involved in driving positive change throughout the industry. It’s simply the right thing to do.” (GK)
