The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Programme from Netherlands, has announced joining of seven new organisations, in order to support the programme’s vision of widespread implementation of sustainable chemistry and best practices in the textile, leather and footwear industry to protect consumers, workers, and the environment.

By joining the ZDHC Programme, all organisations commit to working collaboratively on the development and implementation of ZDHC tools. These include a Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL), Chemical Guidance Sheets and Wastewater Guidelines and two new platforms: the ZDHC Academy - which provides brands and manufacturers with ZDHC certified training about chemical management and the ZDHC Gateway - Chemical Module and Wastewater Module.

Hugo Boss, one of the market leaders in the upper premium segment of the global apparel market, has joined ZDHC. In its membership, the company sees a large lever for further mitigating environmental impacts in the production process, for its own production sites as well as for the collaboration with its partners.

Other companies joining as value chain affiliates include Dr. Petry Textile Auxiliaries, an established chemical company, that produces chemical auxiliaries for the textile industry for more than 40 years; TFL, a globally operating company producing specialty chemicals for the leather industry and related industries; and UL Consumer & Retail Services helps manufacturers and retailers in every aspect of the supply chain and production process, from raw materials to sales transactions, to better manage risks and deliver products that are safe, socially responsible and compliant with industry and brand specifications.

Companies joining as associate include the Association TEGEWA that represents chemical producers based in Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland - which manufacture in the field of textile, leather and fur auxiliaries, colorants, and allied products; ETAD, an association of international colorant manufacturers and started its collaboration with ZDHC right from the programme’s foundation, now they will continue to provide its input as an associate contributor; and The Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF) that assists the Taiwan textile industries in coping with the challenges presented by the ever-changing economic and trade environment.
