The fundamental objectives of the ZDHC can be summarized as follows:

- To develop effective tools, good practices and training to improve chemical management
- To develop collaboration with stakeholders to promote transparency regarding the chemicals used / discharged and the application of good practices
ZDHC – Gateway
In order to reduce the use of dangerous chemicals within the supply chain, the ZDHC Gatewa, a portal for data exchange , was developed in 2017. This database allows producers of chemicals and dyes to securely share information in line with the most stringent international standards and in accordance with the ZDHC MRSL now in its version 2 dated January 2020 (https: //mrsl.roadmaptozero. com), or the list of chemicals whose intentional use is prohibited in the production of textiles, natural and synthetic leather, as well as finishes for textiles and footwear.
