The CHT Group must meet further requirements besides legal regulations.
Our customers and we as a result must face an increased number of standards for the textile industry issued by reputable certification bodies and also company standards of different brands, retailers and of the trade.
The most widespread standards of independent organisations besides company standards:
The dedication and the responsibility of CHT are illustrated by the fact that we have decided to become a bluesign supporter in 2008.Our decision was based on the comprehensive assessment of risks and hazards by the bluesign overall concept. This concept deals with chemical products and substances used by the company and also the process of managing air, water, soil, people and energy.
We also give our active support to further interesting initiatives of the textile industry, the ZDHC initiative created in 2011. (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals).
The initiative presently comprises 18 brands and three textile associations for apparel and sports and leisure equipment. The roadmap of this initiative set a target to create a new standard for environmental protection and manufacturing conditions for the global apparel and footwear industry by 2020. There have been seven projects launched. The CHT Group plays an active role in three projects as an advisor, and we also take part in the entire process of three other projects.
