"Elevate is excited to take this next step in affirming our commitment to sustainability by expanding our ZDHC participation across all the Elevate portfolio brands," said Jimmy Summers, vice president environment, health, safety & sustainability for Elevate Textiles in a company press release. "American & Efird joined in 2017 and has been an active contributor in driving industry best practices and responsible chemical management in manufacturing. This same commitment extends across Elevate's other brands – Burlington, Cone Denim, Gütermann and Safety Components – as we continue to drive positive change towards more advanced sustainable chemistry."
Elevate's Jimmy Summers will serve as a co-lead in the ZDHC Output Focus Area group. Through work and collaboration with other brands and government organisations, the ZDHC Wastewater Guidelines will go beyond regulatory compliance to help ensure that the discharge of treated wastewater does not negatively impact the environment and surrounding communities.
