Published on Thursday 21 July 2022· INDUSTRY AND SERVICE PROVIDERS

On 21 September, the Implementation HUB of ZDHC, in cooperation with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), will host an online Africa Event. Key stakeholders of the African Textile, Leather and Footwear Industry are invited to this event to learn more about solutions and experiences for sustainable chemical management.

The half-day webinar for African industry actors will present the ZDHC Foundation Roadmap to Zero programme,  eliminating hazardous chemicals in the fashion industry. Projects from Ethiopia and UNIDO will also show preliminary results from the SwitchMed programme and will path the way for future UNIDO projects in the African textile industry.

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.
