Ten organisations have committed to the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme, a coalition of over 85 contributors. These organisations will work together for widespread implementation of sustainable chemistry, driving innovations and best practices in the textile, apparel and footwear industries to protect consumers, workers and the environment. 

"It’s great to see the continuous ongoing support from the industry," said ZDHC executive director Frank Michel.

The ten new organisations joining as the value chain affiliates and associates belong to various industries including textile, chemical and information technology. The associates are Jollity Enterprise, Smit & zoon, ACS Textiles Bangladesh Ltd, Salirone, Santori Pellami Spa, Geo-Chem Laboratories Pvt Ltd, Modern Testing Services, Process Factory srl, Ritex Research and Textile Testing Lab and UNPAC.

"We appreciate the help and commitment from all our contributors and are delighted to welcome these ten new organisations to our ZDHC Family," said Michel. "With the onboarding of the new contributors we also enlarge our geographic scope and depth by welcoming the first organisation headquartered in Bangladesh as well as growth in the number of contributors from Italy."

By joining ZDHC, the organisations will not only help to work on the programme’s vision, but also commit to a strengthened commitment towards better chemical management practices and the adoption and implementation of ZDHC tools. These include, amongst others, the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (ZDHC MRSL) and the ZDHC Wastewater guidelines.

Recently, ZDHC officially launched the ZDHC Implementation HUB in Amsterdam. The Implementation HUB takes the scaling of chemical and environmental management best practices to the next level and accelerates impact along the value chains of the textile, apparel, footwear and leather industries.
