Clean Production Action and the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme have included GreenScreen Certified as the newest accepted certification standard for ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (ZDHC MRSL) Conformance. The ZDHC MRSL enlists chemical substances banned from intentional use in facilities processing textile materials and leather.

“The ZDHC MRSL is a list of chemical substances banned from intentional use in facilities that process textile materials, leather, and trim parts in textiles and footwear,” explained Scott Echols, programme director at ZDHC. “The ZDHC MRSL conformance process offers brands, material suppliers, and product finishers a choice of recognised and accepted options to demonstrate MRSL conformance. We are proud to announce the GreenScreen Certified Standard for Textile Chemicals as the sixth ZDHC Accepted provider of services to indicate Level 1 conformance to the ZDHC MRSL.”

GreenScreen Certified builds from Clean Production Action’s widely acclaimed chemical hazard assessment tool, GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals. GreenScreen defines the path to safer chemicals for industry standards and ecolabels, like the US Green Building Council’s LEED standard for green buildings, BIFMA’s LEVEL standard for sustainable furniture, and EPEAT standards and TCO Certified for electronics.

“We are excited to integrate GreenScreen into ZDHC’s community of users,” highlighted Shari Franjevic, GreenScreen programme manager at Clean Production Action. “We have over 60 textile chemical formulations certified to GreenScreen. Formulators use GreenScreen Certified to communicate achievement and suppliers and brands use GreenScreen Certified to select products. All members of the value chain benefit by meeting or exceeding their sustainability goals while reducing their regulatory and reputational risks related to chemicals.”

All levels of GreenScreen Certified – bronze, silver, and gold – achieve ZDHC MRSL Level 1 conformance and can be included and verified in the ZDHC Gateway – Chemical Module. Formulators with GreenScreen Certified products, including Beyond Surface Technologies, Epygen Labs, Kemin Industries’ Garmon brand, and TLP International, can now list them in the ZDHC Gateway.

The Garmon brand, recently acquired by Kemin Industries, is the forward-looking research and development leader in total chemical solutions for garment finishes. Garmon was the first chemical formulator with GreenScreen Certified products. “GreenScreen Certified gives us the platform to clearly communicate our commitment to environmentally sound solutions for the denim and fashion industries,” highlighted Kimberly Nelson, Textile Auxiliaries – business development manager of Garmon Chemicals for Kemin Industries.
