Who is the ZDHC Academy for?

The ZDHC Academy is a resource for brands, facilities, Accredited Training Providers and those interested in the sector

For facilities, the training provides the opportunity to improve knowledge and skills in sustainable chemical and wastewater management. The trainings are aimed at factory managers who are responsible for dyeing, printing, chemical purchase, ETP, EHS, quality assurance and sustainability or working in a similar function in the textile and footwear industry. Facilities can also organise training for the staff of their facility, either on-site or off-site.

The training courses are aimed at brands' supply chain partners to enhance their know-how, awareness, and expertise in sustainable chemical and wastewater management. Brands are encouraged to invite their supply chain partners to visit the ZDHC Academy and register for the training courses according to their training needs. Brands can also organise training for their supply chain partners together with the ZDHC Academy team and the ATPs.

For Accredited Training Providers (ATPs) the ZDHC Academy is the platform for organisation and administration of their training sessions. The ZDHC Academy coordinates the workflow of the trainers and manages the training participants. The trainers provide training in local languages and on-site, as well as in customised online courses. The ATPs can market their training offers on the ZDHC Academy, present and showcase their trainers and receive feedback from the training participants.
