Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Academy has been updated as a platform delivering enhancing sustainable chemical management training for the textile, apparel, footwear and leather industry. Learners and trainers accessing the platform will now find it improved and easier to navigate, register for training and track learning progress.

First launched in 2016, this globally recognised and neutral training platform makes high quality and certified training courses available to all parts of the value chain, from brands and retailers, to manufacturers and tanneries.

The ZDHC Academy creates awareness, builds knowledge, and improves skills through a pool of seven ZDHC Accredited Training Providers and more than 60 individual trainers, to industry stakeholders around the world. It enables them to understand and adopt the basics as well as best practices and innovations for holistic sustainable chemical management, ZDHC said on its website.

"With more than 1,000 training participants and nearly 80 in-person training sessions in 2018 so far, we wanted to take our training platform to the next level in terms of clarity and user-friendliness. We are excited about the growing uptake of our academy worldwide and committed to continuously setting the mark on training content and quality together with our Accredited Training Providers and partners," Christina Raab, global implementation director at ZDHC Foundation, said.

As part of the revamp, ZDHC is offering a new training course – ZDHC Wastewater Management Training. This training course introduces participants to the key elements of the ZDHC Wastewater Guidelines, shows how to implement them and how to conduct a root cause analysis in the event that test results show non-conformance. Additionally, this training offers an overview of each stage of the wastewater treatment process, giving all participants a basic understanding of how today’s wastewater treatment technology works, the website added.

Additional training courses are under finalisation and are expected to be announced in January 2019, along with an expanded pool of ZDHC Accredited Training Providers. (RR)
