The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Foundation has opened its 2018 application phase for qualified organisations and their trainers to become ZDHC accredited training providers. ZDHC is a collaboration of leading brands, value chain affiliates, and associates leading the textile industry towards zero discharge of hazardous chemicals.

Following the first round of application in 2016, ZDHC is looking for additional training providers to support the expansion of ZDHC certified training globally through the ZDHC academy to all apparel, textile, footwear, and leather sourcing, trading and retail regions.

The ZDHC academy is the globally recognised, neutral training platform for sustainable chemicals management, related innovation topics and ZDHC implementation for the apparel, textile, footwear, and leather industry. It currently provides in-person or blended training sessions in local languages in over 20 countries on introduction to chemical management (basic and advanced), top ten chemical management issues, and introduction to wastewater management. Trainings are conducted by so-called ZDHC accredited training providers that undergo a rigorous vetting process in terms of experience, expertise and didactics.

Christina Raab, ZDHC implementation director said, “The ZDHC academy is entering an exciting stage of scale, with additional training materials under development and an expanded scope of regions and audiences, from textile mills and tanneries, to brands, retailers and policy makers. Strong training partnerships of highest expertise and quality are key to successfully building and growing capacity of the industry at large.” (GK)
