London - Kingpins Transformers has joined forces with the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Roadmap-to-Zero Programme to help drive sustainable change within the denim industry.
The new collaboration sees the bi-annual summit series combining its forces with ZDHC's mission to accelerate the fashion industry towards a future of zero discharge of hazardous chemicals while focusing on the specific needs and challenges within the denim value chain.
This new initiative, which follows on from the concept 'Roadmap to Rational Denim', will be led and supported by two founding members of Kingpins Transformer: Alberto De Conti, from Garmon Chemicals and Miguel Sanchez, from Archroma.
“Messrs De Conti and Sanchez are vital voices and minds - leaders in the denim industry - and we will rely upon them to help reach the goal of establishing industry standards for the denim supply chain,” said Andrew Olah, founder of Kingpins Transformers. “All of us believe in the need to establish unified industry standards – such as ZDHC’s MRSL and Wastewater Guidelines and we will all work diligently to create that as the international standard.”
