Lanxess claims confirmation as supplier of sustainable leather chemicals

Leather chemicals manufacturer Lanxess has completed Zero Discharge for Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) certification for all organic leather chemicals. It said on making the announcement that this development confirms the company’s status as “a supplier of sustainable leather chemicals”.

It says it is the first chemicals manufacturer to complete level-three compliance in the ZDHC Gateway, which it says is the largest online catalogue for sustainable chemicals in the textile and apparel industry.

Lanxess’s portfolio in the ZDHC Gateway now contains close to 500 products, covering what the company calls “every step of leather manufacturing”.

The ZDHC Foundation, which was established in 2011, has set itself the goal of improving sustainability and chemicals management. Its Roadmap to Zero programme aims to encourage manufacturers to reduce the use of hazardous substances in the global leather, footwear and textile value chain.
