ZDHC’s new chemicals tool will be offered to all

The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Foundation has launched the Chemical Module of the ZDHC Gateway after a six-month pilot.

The online search tool will help chemical buyers to choose safer options, said the group.

It shows to which level (from 0 to 3) a chemical product conforms with the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL). A high-level rating indicates a high level of confidence that the chemical formulation conforms to the list.

At the start of 2018, in addition to eliminating the need for any coordination with ZDHC, the Gateway will be offered to any company within the textile, leather and footwear chain, even those who are not ZDHC signatory brands or affiliates.

“We’re really excited for the launch of this tool, that will be invaluable in providing clear, easily-accessible information on whether a chemical conforms with the ZDHC MRSL,” said ZDHC executive director Frank Michel.

“For this next exciting phase, we’re calling on the ZDHC contributor community to engage their relevant value chain partners.”
