Singapore -- Huntsman Textile Effects is a proud member of the Global Chemical Industry Round Table initiative (GCIRT) and is very happy to announce today our decision to join the ZDHC Foundation as a contributor. We will be uploading our key products onto the ZDHC Gateway Chemical Module and support the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL) and the related “pyramid” conformity system designed to eliminate duplicative approaches. This is the fundamental base to the success of ZDHC and all stakeholders of the textile value chain. Huntsman Textile Effects will actively engage in various task forces focused on supporting the continuous improvement programs of ZDHC. As such Huntsman Textile Effects, together with the GCIRT Initiative, look forward to a close and open cooperation with all stakeholders of ZDHC.

“As one of the world’s leading chemical suppliers of sustainable textile dyes, we take a proactive approach in reducing the industry’s environmental footprint and eliminating hazardous chemicals. The collaboration with ZDHC is an important step in our journey towards a clean, compliant, ethical and thriving textile industry,” said Rohit Aggarwal, President, Huntsman Textile Effects.

Huntsman Textile Effects has had a long-standing commitment to sustainability through continuous innovation and collaboration across the industry. An inclusive and holistic approach that considers the impact of Huntsman’s operations on the ecosystem, economy and society at large, and ensures compliance to industry regulation and standards, is vital to driving sustainability across the textile value chain.

In alignment with other chemical suppliers in the industry, Huntsman Textile Effects reaffirms its commitment to sustainable chemistry and the elimination of hazardous chemicals.
