Three of the ten firms to have recently joined the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme are from textiles. These organisations commit to working on the programme’s vision of widespread implementation of sustainable chemistry, driving innovations and best practices in the textile, apparel and footwear industries to protect consumers, workers and the environment. 

The new textile organisations joining as the value chain affiliates are ACS Textiles Bangladesh Ltd, Salirone and Santori Pellami Spa. ACS Textiles is a British investment, a state-of-the-art, composite manufacturing facility, with weaving, dyeing, printing, finishing, and packaging services. Salirone is a unique and well-developed manufacturer for 100 per cent silicone coated materials and Santori Pellami Spa is a family owned business, specialised in the production and sale of leathers.

“It’s great to see the continuous ongoing support from the industry. We appreciate the help and commitment from all our contributors and are delighted to welcome these new organisations to our ZDHC family. With the onboarding of the new contributors we also enlarge our geographic scope and depth by welcoming the first organisation headquartered in Bangladesh," said ZDHC executive director Frank Michel. 

By joining ZDHC, the organisations 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 and the ZDHC Wastewater Guidelines.

Last month ZDHC officially launched the ZDHC Implementation HUB during the Friends of ZDHC Day in Amsterdam. The implementation of 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.
