Some challenges are too big to face alone, so we help out

an inclusive approach

The Implementation HUB accelerates a positive impact along global value chain. We do this by engaging with partner organisations and enabling implementation projects.

What we do

Our solutions help suppliers, producers and buyers advance towards sustainable chemical management.

We offer a comprehensive supplier network

The Implementation HUB hosts several opportunities for self-learning and self-assessment. They benefit suppliers to various sectors and industries. All learning programmes are linked on one platform, which also connects to the ZDHC Gateway. Other supports are provided, like the Supplier to Zero platform, which supports the implementation of chemical management practices. It also identifies supplier facilities with exceptional chemical management performance. The MMCF module will enable man-made cellulosic fibre producers to demonstrate advanced environmental management knowledge. A Resource Efficiency module will also be launched soon.

We partner with other organisations and initiatives

The Implementation HUB supports the great work of other sustainability associations, initiatives and programmes. We work closely with various sustainability associations, including the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) or amfori BEPI. The Implementation HUB supports the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme in its work with the German Textile Alliance and the Dutch Agreement on Sustainable Garments and Textile (AGT). In addition, we closely work with programmes such as the Leather Working Group (LWG) or Clean by Design, enabling them to use ZDHC platforms and solutions in their implementation work.

We engage with Implementation Projects

United Nations Bodies and Organisations, international development agencies and public private partnerships (PPP) are increasing their efforts to support supplier facilities, manufacturers and legislators in understanding the challenges of driving industry change. The Implementation HUB supports these efforts by getting involved in programme design and consultancy. We ensure that implementation projects incorporate the set of tools and solutions necessary to meet their goals and objectives. These projects can link to our network of approved expertise and connect to industry solutions like the ZDHC Gateway, or our Supplier to Zero platform.
