UL’s Sustainable Chemistry and Supply Chain Management Services

UL has been a contributor to the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme since 2017, supporting a vision of widespread implementation of sustainable chemistry and best practices in the textile, leather and footwear industries to protect consumers, workers and the environment.

UL experts and the global network of high-tech laboratories support textile and leather companies in implementing a chemical management strategy through:

  • Wastewater and sludge analysis in connection with the ZDHC Gateway — Wastewater Module. UL has laboratories in Europe, Africa and Asia that are provisionally accepted by ZDHC for this service.
  • Level 1 certification to ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (ZDHC MRSL) helps demonstrate that chemical formulations used in a product’s manufacture do not contain any restricted ZDHC MRSL banned substances
  • Education on chemical management and wastewater topics. UL presents official ZDHC trainings in live classrooms or via online webinars to fashion and luxury brands and their global supply chains in different languages.  
  • Advisory services to implement good practices, think about corrective and preventive actions that prevent management issues, avoid nonconformity with the MRSL and help reduce risks and accidents in the workplace

UL has collaborated with UNIDO and ZDHC under the SwitchMed Program, an initiative funded by the European Union, to promote a circular economy in the Mediterranean by changing the way goods and services are produced and consumed.

Industry manufacturers, international brands operating in Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco, joined a series of ZDHC official trainings presented by UL to deepen their knowledge about sustainable chemical management, environmental impact, mitigation measures and wastewater quality. After this first phase, we supporter them to implement a chemical management system in their factories.
