ZDHC is a multi-stakeholder organization comprising over 170 contributors across the industry, including Brands, Suppliers, Chemical Suppliers, and Solution Providers. The Roadmap to Zero Programme by ZDHC leads the fashion industry to eliminate harmful chemicals from its global supply chain by building the foundation for more sustainable manufacturing to protect workers, consumers and the planet’s ecosystems.
Under the EU-funded SwitchMed/MED TEST III project, UNIDO, together with ZDHC, is building local capacities in Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia to implement sustainable chemical management practices that can help protect the environment and increase the ability of the textile and fashion industry to produce in line with international standards.
