Global Chemical Industry Round Table join ZDHC

25.06.2019 After an intense dialogue and a series of meetings during the past year between the ZDHC (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals) Board of Directors and the Global Chemical Industry Round Table initiative (GCIRT), an alignment was gained on ZDHC organizational commitments and a mutual understanding of the role of chemical suppliers within the ZDHC program. This opens the doors for broader, more active distribution of chemistry expertise and implementation support of textile dye and leather chemical manufacturing industry in the ZDHC program.
