24 May 2018
ISKO has become the first Turkish manufacturer to become a signatory member of the ZDHC Foundation. The denim mill joins the ZDHC Foundation as it continues to push forward its Responsible Innovation strategy.
The move sees ISKO joining forces with the other 94 ZDHC contributors, which includes brands such as H&M, Burberry, and Adidas, to help develop the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme which aims to advance zero discharge of hazardous chemicals in the textile, leather and footwear supply chains.
Together the 95 ZDHC contributors have committed to leading the adoption and implementation of ZDHC tools, which include amongst others the ZDHC Wastewater Guidelines, the ZDHC Gateway and the ZDHC MRSL.
The ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme takes a holistic approach to eliminating the use of priority hazardous chemicals by focusing on the manufacturing restricted substances list, wastewater quality, audit protocol, research and conformity guidance.
