Five more companies have joined Roadmap To Zero as ZDHC as contributors. As ZDHC (zero discharge of hazardous chemicals) contributors, each will play a crucial role in supporting the Roadmap to Zero Programme. With three new companies from the chemical industry and two new solution providers on board, the contributor base is further broadened.

This is expected to further accelerate ZDHC’s impact in 2020.

Of the three companies from the chemical industry, one is Buckman International, an industry leader in microorganism-control programmes and hide-preservation solutions for the leather industry. It offers a full range of beamhouse and wet-end chemistries, and is equipped with the latest advanced data analysis, patented innovations and eco-friendly chemistries, to help measurably improve tannery’s operations and promote long-term sustainability and growth.

Another company, Modern Dyestuffs & Pigments Co, is a leading global manufacturer of performance dyestuffs focused on creating premium quality products that also provide environmental sustainability. Industry experts with a wide range of dyestuffs for leather, textile, paper, aluminum and wood applications, Modern uses the latest technologies and procedures to create products that meet the exact requirements of each customer.

The third company, Ohyoung, is a synthetic dyestuff manufacturer for the textile industry. Over the past four decades, it has delivered exclusive technological innovations in the field of dyestuffs for textiles. Ohyoung provides solutions to more than sixty countries, offering a complete range of colourants, auxiliaries and services.

Of the two solution providers, one is NSF International which has provided toxicology and chemical risk assessment services to evaluate ingredients, materials and products against NSF/ANSI standards, and US and international regulations for almost 30 years.

The other is Scivera, recognised as an innovator and leader in making the identification and replacement of hazardous chemicals in products simple, fast, and cost-effective.
