ZDHC program gets more members

zdscLaunched in 2011 by six leading brands, Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals Program now consists of 22 signatory brands, eleven value chain affiliates and four associates, whereas it was only six in 2011. Contributors include apparel and footwear companies such as Burberry, Benneton, Gap, H&M, Inditex, Marks & Spencer, Nike, Puma and Adidas. It aims to harmonies standards across the textile and footwear value chain (including leather) to support safer chemical management. A key component of the program is its manufacturing restricted substances list, which restricts the use of hazardous chemicals used across the manufacturing process. The program has completed chemical use and management surveys and wastewater testing for approximately 150 substances at 20 facilities in Bangladesh, China, India, Taiwan and Vietnam. It’s working on compiling information on chemicals used in the textile industry.
