ZDHC Foundation releases 2015 annual report

The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Foundation, which was formed with the target of eliminating the use of hazardous chemicals in the textile and footwear industry by 2020, has released its 2015 annual report.

The ZDHC transitioned to foundation status in 2015, making it a legal entity, appointed its first board of directors and executive director and created a small team spread between Europe and the US.

The Foundation added a Wastewater Quality tool to its programme, released the Chemical Management System (CMS) Guidance manual to help brands, retailers and suppliers develop their own CMS and published version 1.1 of its Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL), expanding the list to include leather.

ZDHC Foundation has six main priorities for 2016: updating and promoting the MRSL, finalising the audit conformance process, researching solutions to eliminating hazardous chemicals, developing Wastewater Quality Guidance, creating training for standardised chemistry management data and embedding its tools in the supply chain
