Seeking ZDHC Conformance? Take the Chem-MAP programme

Published 28th May 2019

Chem-MAP a tailored chemical management programme within the Chem-MAP® suite of services that have been specifically designed for chemical manufacturers and can help with the achievement of ZDHC Conformance Level 1 to 3. This encourages the use of compliant chemistry in the production of chemical formulations, which will then be used further downstream in the supply chain in the manufacturer of raw materials and consumer products.

The use of less/non-hazardous chemistry in manufacture is a hot topic for many brands and retailers.

Chem-MAP enables certified chemical formulations to become accessible to manufacturers, brands and retailers, through certified ZDHC Gateway listings. Thereby enabling manufacturers to make responsible and verified chemical selections, which helps to reduce compliance issues downstream in the supply chain. Ultimately protecting both people and the environment
