ZDHC gets four new contributors

Dec '19
ZDHC, a group of apparel and footwear brands and retailers working towards zero discharge of hazardous chemicals by 2020, has added four new contributors. Advance Denim and Candiani Denim have joined in the textile industry category, ToxServices within the solution provider category and the Consorzio Conciatori di Ponte a Egola joins as new associate.

The four organisations will help and support the ZDHC community and the mission.

Advance Denim established in 1987 is one of the oldest denim mills in China, inheriting the silk business in 1930's. Innovation and quality-control lead Advance Denim as one of the best denim manufacturers. Advance Denim is also one of the co-founders of Denim City in Amsterdam.

Established in 1938, Candiani Denim is a vertically integrated denim mill that supplies some of the most prestigious fashion brands. Specialising in rigid and stretch denim, Candiani is one of Europe’s largest denim mills.

ToxServices is a 15-year-old company that is considered one of the pioneers of informed substitution and alternatives assessment. Working with leading apparel brands, ToxServices created ToxFMD Screened Chemistry, a ZDHC MRSL Level 1 ecolabel that paves the way to intelligent and cost-effective hazard reduction and informed substitution throughout the supply chain.

The Consorzio Conciatori di Ponte a Egola represents the category towards public administrations, bodies, economic organisations, workers and entrepreneurial trade unions.

ZDHC is a group of apparel and footwear brands and retailers working together to lead the industry towards zero discharge of hazardous chemicals by 2020. ZDHC was started in 2011, mostly as a response to the Greenpeace DeTox campaign. Part of the initial work established a Joint Roadmap that demonstrated the collaborative efforts and steps needed to lead the apparel and footwear industry towards zero discharge of hazardous chemicals for all products across all pathways by 2020.
