The ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Program, which aims to eliminate the discharge of hazardous chemicals in the textile and footwear value chain, has expanded its list of contributors with four new companies: Eurodye-CTC, a Belgian manufacturer of textiles; Centrocot SpA, an Italian testing service; the Japan Textile Products Quality and Technology Centre (QTEC), an inspection group; and Envoy Textiles Limited, a Bangladeshi denim mill. The total number of contributors now stands at 125. They consist of 27 brands (among them New Balance, Nike, Adidas and Puma), 80 value-chain affiliates and 18 associates. The ZDHC began in 2011 as a coalition of six textile brands. It now focuses on six areas: its manufacturing restricted-substances list (MRSL), wastewater quality, audit protocols, research, data and disclosure, and training.
