The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) has added four affiliates, ADEC Innovations, Lanzhou Ketian, PrimeAsia Leather Corporation New Materials Co. Ltd, and Stahl Holdings BV, to work for contributing to the programme's vision of widespread implementation of sustainable chemistry to protect consumers, workers, and the environment.

ADEC Innovations is an impact investing company that designs and develops a diverse technology portfolio of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) solutions. Lanzhou Ketian New Materials Co., Ltd is a leading supplier of Chinese waterborne synthetic leather. 

PrimeAsia Leather Corporation is a manufacturer of high quality lifestyle and sports inspired leathers for the global branded footwear, apparel, and leather goods. Stahl Holdings BV is a leading company in process chemicals for leather products and performance coatings.

The ZDHC Programme's goal is to harmonise standards across the textile and footwear value-chain to support safer chemical management and through its six area of focus, it works to achieve this.

A key component of the ZDHC Programme is its manufacturing restricted substances list (MRSL), hailed as an industry milestone, which restricts the use of hazardous chemicals used across the manufacturing process.

ZDHC executive director Frank Michel said, “Standard setting, collaborative implementation, and industry engagement are all keys to driving the success of the programme forward. We're encouraged to see growing support for our work because one brand or supplier cannot achieve this alone.”

The ZDHC Programme began in 2011 initiated by six leading brands and now consists of 22 signatory brands, 11 value chain affiliates, and four associates. (GK)
