Roadmap to Zero is a holistic Programme that supports the entire supply chain. It is the foundation of all our work and creates the ZDHC guidelines, platforms and solutions.
Managing chemical inputs is key to safer products, cleaner water and fresher air. The Input Focus Area is the cornerstone of the work we do.
Good procedures and best practices are vital to reduce the environmental impact of production. This Focus Area helps organisations to put these elements in place.
Outputs prove the effectiveness of safer inputs and processes. It does so by measuring indicators like wastewater, sludge and air quality.
As ZDHC implementation partner, the Implementation HUB supports organisations all over the world, by offering the solutions, training and experts they need to put good chemical management in motion.
