Nicca Chemical becomes the first ZDHC Contributor in Japan
Nicca Chemical Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce that it is becoming the first Japanese company to join the ZDHC.
ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme(*1) is called ZDHC for short and is aimed at restricting the use of hazardous substances at the time of manufacturing textile, leather and footwear value chain. The world's leading apparel brands and groups related to the supply chain are the contributors(*2) and in 2015, the ZDHC has published the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (ZDHC MRSL), a list of chemical substances that restrict intentional use in facilities that process textile materials, coated fabrics, leather, and trim parts in textiles and footwear products.
At Nicca, we have restricted the use of these hazardous substances since 2015 and have released a list of our products that conform to, or meet the ZDHC MRSL on our website. In addition to our efforts, environmentally friendly corporate attitude and CSR activities, we are now joining the ZDHC to contribute to environmental preservation.
As a result of joining ZDHC, we will aim for further recognition in the international industry and are looking forward to collaborating with the ZDHC Community. Through the involvement in textile processing supply chains (apparel, retailer, textile processing manufacturers, material manufacturers, etc.), we continue to protect consumers, workers and the environment from processed chemicals and will contribute to achieving the ZDHC philosophy.
