Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) programme has added six new contributors—ICEC, MAS Holdings, Siam Pro Group of companies, TUV SUD, Oeko-Tex and The Fiber and Textile Chemicals Technology Division of ITRI. ZDHC is a collaboration of over 50 signatory brands, value chain affiliates and associates, which works for removal of harmful chemicals.

ICEC, MAS Holdings, Siam Pro Group of companies and TUV SUD have joined the programme as value chain affiliates, while Oeko-Tex and The Fiber and Textile Chemicals Technology Division of Industrial Technology Research Institute, for sustainability are the associates. With the addition of these six companies/organisations, the total number of contributors to the ZDHC programme has gone up to 56.

ZDHC takes a holistic approach to safer chemical management by focusing on a range of key areas to achieve the goal of sustainability. Its key tools include a Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL), Chemical Guidance Sheets, Wastewater Guidelines and the launch of two new platforms: The ZDHC Academy and Chemical Gateway.

Institute of Quality Certification for the Leather Sector (ICEC) is the only certification Institute worldwide specialised for the leather sector. Based in Sri Lanka, MAS Holdings is one of the world’s most recognised design–to-delivery solution providers for apparel and textile manufacturing. Siam Pro Group of companies, headquartered in Thailand, is a leading specialty chemical company with an extensive portfolio to fully serve the textile industry. TUV SUD is an international service corporation focusing on consulting, certification, training and the testing of consumer products.

The Fiber and Textile Chemicals Technology Division of ITRI is one of the world’s leading technology R&D institutions, which aims to innovate a better future for society. Oeko-Tex provides certifications and services which test for harmful substances and optimize production conditions, helping companies deliver high quality, more sustainable products.

“Responsible hazardous chemical control is complex, and demands a holistic approach,” said ZDHC executive director Frank Michel. “It’s not enough to simply use one standard or tool, and industry collaboration, from all actors across the value chain, is essential to drive this agenda forward.”
 
“Since January 2015, our contributor base has doubled, and I'm delighted that today we are continuing this trend. We are also welcoming our first contributors based in Sri Lanka and Thailand, further expanding our geographic scope,” he added. (RR)
