Projects & Testimonials
Client ZDHC Report Release
Sustainable Textile Solutions acted as a service provider for the “Discharge Data Report” that was recently launched by C&A, H&M and G-Star raw.
The “Discharge Data Report” is part of the Joint Roadmap that a group of major apparal and footwear brands and retailers developed to help lead the industry towards Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals by 2020 (ZDHC). It reports the results from a pilot study which lasted almost a year, and which aimed to verify whether any chemicals from the 11 priority chemical groups could be detected in the wastewater discharge of selected factories in China, Bangladesh and India
Sustainable Textile Solutions’ expert knowledge and experience of coloration chemistry and textile processing supported this benchmark study through on - site audits, chemical inventory assessment and interpretation of analytical data.
“We really appreciated the expertise and co-operation of Sustainable Textile Solutions in delivering the Factory Benchmarking Study and Discharge Data Report on behalf of the ZDHC brands” (Lars Doemer of H&M)
