ZDHC’s Roadmap to Zero second Impact Report is live

The first Impact Report 2019 established the baseline for reporting as it was the first time the organization had data. Over 2020, the data has become more robust and as they continue to improve the data processes, this trend will continue.

In this, the second Impact Report, ZDHC reports on implementation progress and present recent developments within ZDHC and the industry at large.

ZDHC welcomes the growing awareness in environmental sustainability within the global community of brands, customers and policy makers and progress in the regulatory environment for chemical sustainability such as the new EU legislation on due-diligence and governance in supply chains.

They report on ZDHC’s evolution into a multi-stakeholder organisation; they bring together businesses, civil society, governments, research institutions and non-government organisations to cooperate in the joint engagement and implementation efforts of the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme.

ZDHC reviews their Programme implementation in 2020 by evaluating the industries’ efforts in eliminating toxic chemicals from their supply chains and the uptake of the ZDHC Sustainable Chemical Management Framework. Along with the scaling of their tools they also report on improvements and enhancements in their toolbox of chemical management solutions, grounded in manufacturing realities.

ZDHC sees the deepening engagement and continuing growth in numbers of committed organisations joining the ZDHC community across all major stakeholder categories; Brands, Suppliers and Chemical Suppliers.

They share the progress of their three ZDHC Leader Programmes; Brands to Zero, Supplier to Zero and our forthcoming leader programme for chemical suppliers. They comprise a self-reinforcing mechanism designed to foster an industry-wide momentum towards holistic, sustainable chemical management.

Whilst highlighting their collective impact they also renew, with increased urgency, the call for collaborative action and commitment to safer chemistry to all supply chain partners. Why? In the post-pandemic recovery period, the global fashion market is likely to grow again at an impressive rate, and as it does so, so too will its impact on the environment, from which it is not yet decoupled.

'Despite the progress we have made, “Our job is far from done” remains our guiding mantra at ZDHC', the organisation stated.
