In order to reduce these risks the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemical Program was created.The ZDHC program’s aim is to dramatically reduce the use of hazardous chemicals in the textile and footwear value chain. The expected result? In a short amount of time we will have a sustainable production, by respecting the environment and thus improving people’s well-being.
