UL Consumer & Retail Services Joins the ZDHC Programme as Official Contributor
Today, UL Consumer & Retail Services (CRS) is pleased to announce it is joining the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Programme and in doing so, supports the Programme’s vision of widespread implementation of sustainable chemistry and best practices in the textile, leather and footwear industries to protect consumers, workers and the environment.
The textile industry is under increasing pressure to minimise its impact upon the environment and improve the sustainability of supply chains. The Joint Roadmap towards ZDHC demands that hazardous chemicals are eliminated from textile supply chains by 2020, to be replaced by greener alternatives. “UL Consumer & Retail Services commits to working collaboratively on this task and towards the milestones set in the Programme’s Joint Roadmap through active engagement with other brands, retailers and stakeholders. This partnership will be of fundamental importance to drive all of us toward a new sustainable culture based on a chemical management approach for the benefit of consumers, workers and the environment” noted Elisa Gavazza, Global Lead for Chemical Management, UL CRS.
UL Consumer & Retail Services helps manufacturers and retailers in every aspect of the supply chain and production process, from raw materials to sales transactions, to better manage risks and deliver products that are safe, socially responsible and compliant with industry and brand specifications.

The Saga Foundation (saga.org) announces today its mission to create Saga (SGA), the first non-anonymous blockchain-based digital currency. The currency is designed with a tamed volatility mechanism.

Saga aims to promote a low-volatility environment, combining the virtues of blockchain technologies with algorithmic representations of financial tools. For this reason, Saga is backed by a variable
