ZDHC is deepening its collaboration with the Open Apparel Registry (OAR) by implementing the OAR’s Facility ID in the ZDHC Gateway platform via an API connection. The OAR is a free, neutral, open-source tool that maps garment facilities worldwide and assigns unique facility IDs. The OAR thereby enables to identify all global apparel facilities and their connections to brands, civil society organizations, multi-stakeholder initiatives or factory groups. ZDHC has already updated and added OAR IDs to 42 percent of the supplier records currently in the ZDHC Gateway with the exact matching names and addresses in the OAR. Sharing data through platforms like the OAR is meant to increase transparency within the supply chain and promote progression towards more sustainable chemistry.
