The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Foundation has launched its implementation hub, which helps best practices of chemical and environmental management and accelerates impact along the value chains of the textile and other industries. The official launch is part of the first “Friends of ZDHC” event that gathers the family of ZDHC contributors and the wider community of brands, retailers, supply chain partners, and leading sector organisations who reference or endorse the ZDHC approaches.

ZDHC implementation hub marks the entering of a new phase for the ZDHC Foundation. Over the past years, ZDHC has put in place a future-proof roadmap to zero programme with best in class guidance and tools that lead the industry towards zero discharge and the use of more sustainable chemistry. ZDHC has tripled the number of contributors over the past two years and continues to gain momentum and uptake on a global scale. To further enable the transformation of the sector towards sustainable chemistry and related environmental performance, the Implementation HUB will be the vehicle to drive continuous improvements and progress around ZDHC-centric topics.

Under the ZDHC implementation hub, industry-leading and holistic service offerings are available for brands, retailer, and manufacturers in the areas of base-lining, strategy setting, and implementation. These support services are conducted by leading industry experts that are accredited by ZDHC to ensure the highest level of competency and quality. Hereby, the HUB bundles and leverages the existing industry expertise and offers a platform to find and match with accredited experts for chemical and environmental management projects.
