about ZDHC

Fashion is a big part of our lives. Every day, millions of people make, sell or buy textile and footwear products. But there's a cost to people and the environment. Unsafe chemicals and production processes are polluting our planet. In 2011, the industry was challenged to tackle the issue and a coalition of leading brands took action. From this, the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme was born. ZDHC started driving the use of safer inputs and best practice - the industry’s detox had begun.

DETOX.Live shows everyone the results of that work, via a global picture of the Programme's impact. It shows which companies are changing their practices and how well the industry is performing overall.

Every supplier on the DETOX.Live map is proactively engaged with safer production. They are making changes, controlling inputs to ensure safer outputs, testing wastewater, or running corrective action plans. It's all a core part of their business, one which we profit from with cleaner water, air and soil.

DETOX.Live maps out where these suppliers are and provides a platform to showcase these efforts.
