A growing number of companies are taking steps to eliminate hazardous chemicals from their products and supply chains.

To this end, ADEC Innovations and the ZDHC Foundation say they are building a centralized product information database that helps chemical producers, brands and textile and footwear suppliers make better sourcing decisions.

ADEC supplies environmental, social and governance software, consulting and data management services to organizations around the world.

The ZDHC Foundation is a nonprofit that oversees the management of the ZDHC Programme, a collaboration of nearly two dozen leading brands including Adidas, H&M, Gap, Nike and Levi’s and industry groups working towards the goal of zero discharge of hazardous chemicals.
