The apparel and footwear industry is known as one of the most environmentally un-friendly industries due to the use of some 20,000 hazardous chemicals* throughout the manufacturing process. Growing consumer awareness is driving the importance of chemical management in the apparel and footwear industry, as well as the substantial marketable benefits brands and manufacturers realize from working to reduce chemicals throughout the supply chain, like:

  • reducing financial and reputational risk
  • demonstrating compliance to U.S. state toxic chemical laws
  • participating and fulfilling brand/licensee initiatives on toxic chemical management
  • gaining acceptance by industry initiatives like the Roadmap to Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals Programme (ZDHC)
