Coats, the world's leading industrial thread manufacturer, has joined the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) programme as a value-chain affiliate.
 
ZDHC programme aims to scale efforts to eliminate hazardous chemicals from the global footwear and textile supply chain. Since its launch by six leading brands in 2011, the programme has grown to 22 signatory brands, four value-chain affiliates and three associate contributions. 
 
“We are excited to see growing industry support for greener chemistry practices, and encourage others within the textile and footwear industries to follow the lead taken by ZDHC brands, now including Coats, towards this end,” said ZDHC Foundation executive director Frank Michel.
 
Coats joining of ZDHC coincided with publishing of its Corporate Responsibility (CR) reporting to reflect performance in 2015 for its global operations. During the year, the company achieved a seven per cent reduction in overall carbon footprint compared to 2014 – through a combination of investments in energy efficiency measures and new technology.
 
Similarly, the company has reduced water usage by more than 12 per cent since 2013, and generated 22 per cent less waste per unit of production than four years ago. Moreover, overall employee engagement score of 83 per cent keeps Coats in the top 10 per cent of all globally surveyed companies.
 
“In 2015 we revisited our materiality assessment analysis and expanded the scope of our reporting to cover a wider range of issues of importance to us and our stakeholders, including more detail about the way we engage with our stakeholders, our tax strategy and our economic contribution to wider communities,” informs David Manns, head of Corporate Responsibility at Coats.
