Framis Italia becomes Contributor to the Roadmap to Zero Programme by ZDHC.
Framis Italia recognizes the need to manage the use and possible release of hazardous chemicals into the environment. For this reason, it has joined the Roadmap to Zero Programme of the ZDHC Foundation (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals) as a Contributor.
Becoming ZDHC Programme Contributor is an achievement in line with the ambitious sustainability goals of the Company, whose mission is to lead the challenge of sustainable growth with its partners, clients and pioneers within the industry.
The ZDHC Programme is a collaboration of organisations from the textile, apparel, leather and footwear industry. These brands, associations and affiliates - the so-called Contributors - are responsible for contributing to the development and implementation of ZDHC guidelines and solutions. They are one step ahead of developments in chemical management, helping the Programme to widespread implementation of sustainable chemistry, driving innovations and best practices to protect consumers, workers and the environment.
The Roadmap to Zero programme focuses on three areas that are linked together to improve chemical management. Within each of these three areas - Input, Processes and Output - it is a priority to develop and maintain ZDHC guidelines, platforms and solutions to enable and accelerate programme implementation.
Producing materials that are derived from chemical synthesis, Framis Italia must ensure that no hazardous substances are incorporated into its products from the beginning of the production process to create a circular process that does not produce or release harmful chemical residues. Thanks to the implementation of the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL), the company can therefore benefit from a structured method that periodically measures the level of application in a transparent manner.
In the future, the company’s entire product line will experience a substantial reduction in its chemical footprint. For this reason, Framis Italia is eager to work in a collaborative manner by actively engaging with all stakeholders, which are necessary to create systematic change through an open and informed dialogue.
The Company is in line with ZDHC’s belief, according to which “by empowering every point of the value chain towards safer manufacturing, we are building a new status quo. Our dynamic, determined community helps to reduce the industry’s environmental footprint. Step-by-step, we want to build a better future for everyone.”
