UL Consumer & Retail Services (CRS), a global safety science company, has joined the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) programme. This is in support of the programme’s vision of widespread implementation of sustainable chemistry and best practices in the textile, leather and footwear industries to protect consumers, workers and the environment.

"UL Consumer & Retail Services commits to working collaboratively on this task and towards the milestones set in the programme’s joint roadmap through active engagement with other brands, retailers and stakeholders. This partnership will be of fundamental importance to drive all of us toward a new sustainable culture based on a chemical management approach for the benefit of consumers, workers and the environment," said Elisa Gavazza, global lead for Chemical Management, UL CRS.

The textile industry is under increasing pressure to minimise its impact upon the environment and improve the sustainability of supply chains. The joint roadmap towards ZDHC demands that hazardous chemicals are eliminated from textile supply chains by 2020, to be replaced by greener alternatives. UL Consumer & Retail Services helps manufacturers and retailers in every aspect of the supply chain and production process, from raw materials to sales transactions, to better manage risks and deliver products that are safe, socially responsible and compliant with industry and brand specifications.
