Archroma first announced its intention to join the ZDHC Foundation as a value chain affiliate on June 19, 2019. The decision to join ZDHC is in line with its commitment to continuously challenging the status quo in the deep belief that it is possible to make the textile industry sustainable. Archroma develops innovations and system solutions developed in compliance with this commitment and aimed to help textile manufacturers with optimised productivity and/or value creation in their markets.
Archroma is supporting the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (ZDHC MRSL) and the related 'pyramid' conformity system designed to eliminate duplicative approaches. This is the fundamental base to the success of ZDHC and all stakeholders of the textile value chain.
Archroma has already uploaded and published a first batch of more than 1020 products on the Chemical Module of the ZDHC Gateway, the online search tool that enables stakeholders in the textile value chain to evaluate the ZDHC MRSL conformance level of chemical formulations used in their production processes. These products are all Bluesign approved and are therefore associated with the highest level of confidence in ZDHC MRSL conformance. More products will be added in the ZDHC Gateway in the weeks and months to come.
"By joining the ZDHC," said Marcos Furrer, president brand & performance textile specialties at Archroma, "we are proud and committed to helping the textile industry towards a more responsible chemical management and open communication. Because it’s our nature!"
