The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Foundation has launched an online academy for chemical management. This academy enables brands and manufacturers to receive certified training to improve their knowledge and practice of responsible chemical management. The ZDHC Academy will provide accredited training modules in up to 20 countries.

The release of the portal for ZDHC chemical management training is significant for the ZDHC programme as it shifts its focus from the development of tools to implementation. The ZDHC academy is currently offering its first course, an Introduction to Chemical Management in the Textile Industry, aimed at manufacturers and suppliers. The first training programme will begin in February in various countries such as Bangladesh, India, Italy, Turkey and Vietnam. With time, the academy will expand by including additional courses and e-learning possibilities.

The online platform offers the ability to organise and administer tailor-made chemical management training modules, and incorporates brand specific requirements. With time, the academy will expand by including additional courses and e-learning possibilities.

“ZDHC is entering a critical phase of collaborative implementation,” said ZDHC training co-lead, Carmen Chan. “Developing safer chemical management standards is one thing, but to truly eliminate hazardous chemicals, the next step is to educate and support those working in mills, factories and even within brands, to understand how to implement these standards,” added Chan.
