In response to the Greenpeace Detox campaign, a group of major apparel and footwear brands and retailers made a shared commitment to help lead the industry towards zero discharge of hazardous chemicals (ZDHC) by 2020. This led to the development of Joint Roadmap in 2011, which involved various specific projects and actions by brands to drive the industry to reach the goal.
As part of the Joint Roadmap, C&A, G-Star and H&M released a “Discharge Data Report” in February 2013. This reports the results from a pilot study which lasted almost a year, and which aimed to verify whether any chemicals from the 11 priority chemical groups could be detected in the wastewater discharge of selected factories in China, Bangladesh and India
Sustainable Textile Solutions’ expert knowledge and experience of coloration chemistry and textile processing supported this benchmark study through an on-site audits, chemical inventory assessment and interpretation of analytical data. "Our global reach and local knowledge make STS a natural partner for global brands working to improve chemical management in their apparel supply chains" states Dr. Siva Rama Kumar Pariti, Global Audit Manager of Sustainable Textile Solutions.
Lars Doemer, Environment Responsible, Global Production of H&M commented “We really appreciated the expertise and co-operation of Sustainable Textile Solutions in delivering the Factory Benchmarking Study and Discharge Data Report on behalf of H&M”.
