US specialty retailer of children’s apparel and accessories The Children’s Place, is the most recent addition to the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Community.
The Children's Place has joined the ZDHC Community as a donor because it feels it is critical that their business contributes to a healthy world for future generations.
According to the organization, joining the ZDHC Foundation's Roadmap to Zero Programme allows The Children's Place to collaborate with industry partners to encourage the implementation of sustainable chemical management practices throughout the fashion value chain. The Children's Place wants to monitor wastewater testing and do expanded studies on vendor chemical inventory by joining the ZDHC community in order to develop a preferred chemicals engagement strategy.
Adrian Sherman, vice president of environment and social responsibility, said that their engagement with [the] ZDHC [Foundation] is one of the initiatives they're doing to promote safer production and contribute to a more sustainable eco-system.
Meanwhile, European footwear store CCC SA has become a 'friend' of the ZDHC Community.
CCC prioritizes ecologically sustainable manufacturing practices and the effective use of natural resources. The corporation is also a member of several notable environmental organizations. It introduced the Circular Economy Roadmap in 2021, establishing the direction for its circularity.
CCC has committed to reviewing the environmental effect of its whole supply chain by 2025, and its objective remains to promote supply chain transparency - 80% of its suppliers should implement their own environmental policies by 2030.
Daria Sulgostowska, head of sustainability in CCC Group, said that every day at CCC SA, they take another step toward sustainability. They made a pledge in their sustainability plan. Joining the ZDHC community is thus a logical extension of the strategic objectives and improvements they are already implementing in their organization. By joining this initiative, they will not only implement best practices for sustainable chemical management, but they will also assist its initiators in achieving their goals, which are the elimination of dangerous substances from the global textile, leather, apparel, and footwear supply chain.
