To achieve a stable and conforming product the responsible management of chemicals is a critical element of sustainable business practice. Compliance with brand restricted chemical requirements is now an essential part of material manufacturing and product supply. In addition, brands and retailers are increasingly concerned about the upstream chemical inputs into materials, and how they impact people and the environment.
Chemical failures in materials and components can have a negative impact on business both in the form of direct cost of recalled product, plus the additional resource required for corrective action. In addition, depending on the type and impact of failure, there is also a potential damage to brand reputation and value.
As the pressure and demand for a more holistic approach to chemical management builds, businesses are investigating the requirements and value proposition of an effective chemical management system (CMS) across their supply chains.
The complexity of the leather and textile supply chains can act as a barrier to the imposition of better practices and ultimately, the purging of hazardous chemicals from the supply chain. As we move further upstream, the visibility of suppliers decreases and, as such, the risk is greater.
