Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC)
In June 2013, the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Group released the Joint Roadmap, Version 2, an ambitious plan that sets a new standard of environmental performance for the global apparel and footwear industry.
This updated Roadmap builds on the initial 2011 Joint Roadmap and sets out a new plan, incorporating and reflecting comments received from a wide range of stakeholders, including textile industry suppliers and associations, government agencies in Asia, Europe and the United States, non-governmental organizations, international development organizations and the chemical industry.Huntsman Textile Effects is committed to a textile industry that produces no unnecessary environmental harm and has a positive impact on the people and communities associated with its activities.In support of the Joint Roadmap Version 2: Towards Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals, Huntsman Textile Effects has developed a list of dyes and chemicals which do not intentionally contain any of the substances in the priority chemical groups above the limits listed in the ZDHC MRSL and therefore can be used to supply textiles to Brands that have signed up to version 2 of the Joint Road Map.
