Event highlight: Best practices and solutions to achieving ZDHC compliance for factories

Highlight 1: Why should the supply chain of fashion industry pursue sustainability?

The textile industry, especially fast fashion, requires the consumption of vast amount of energy, water and chemicals, while causing problems of sewage and carbon emissions. This conflicts with the goal of sustainable development we pursue.

Sustainable development is the key to survival of this all-encompassing, fast-growing, labour-intensive and stakeholder-driven industry. It is necessary for businesses to understand the rapidly-changing environment and its impacts to stay competitive.

Highlight 2: What is the ZDHC’s zero-emission test required by brands and buyers? How to solve the difficulties in undergoing wastewater testing faced by the factories?

There are standard procedures and specific requirements in ZDHC’s management system, with exceeding the standard parameters being one of the most common fallacies.   Our experts have shared the reasons and pitfalls behind and also an overview of statistics in wastewater testing.

Highlight 3: How to start chemicals management simply and practically?

While establishing an effective chemical management system may not sound easy, our technical experts have suggested small and medium-sized businesses could start looking into 4 areas:

  • Where is the chemical waste derived from?
  • What chemical-handling processes are in place which may reduce operational efficiency?
  • What are the health risks to workers?
  • What are the environmental risks?
