What is the objective of ZDHC MMCF Guidelines Industry Standard Implementation Approach Version 2.1:
This is an additional document to the implementation of MMCF Guideline V2.1 for industry support
Along with the ZDHC Man-Made Cellulosic Fibres (MMCF) Guidelines V2.1, ZDHC has also updated its ZDHC MMCF Guidelines Industry Standard Implementation Approach. The document describes what actions the different stakeholders (Brands/Retailers, Suppliers, and ZDHC Provisionally accepted Wastewater testing Laboratories) should take for the successful implementation of the total Guidelines. This document aims to support the implementation process of the ZDHC MMCF Guidelines V2.1, and features new implementation timelines that assist Suppliers in setting their goals to achieve Foundational, Progressive or Aspirational Level (Signatory Suppliers) Supplier to Zero Level 1/2/3 (non-signatory suppliers) on our Supplier Platform.
The monitoring of these responsible production requirements will be done through a system of self-evaluation by the facilities. But we also plan to monitor these through an MMCF module on our Supplier Platform. This is currently a work in progress and it will be officially launched in the coming months.
Viscose staple fibres & modal facilities are expected to reach Progressive Level by Dec 2023 and Aspirational by Dec 2025
Expanded scope fibre facilities are expected to reach Foundational Level by Dec 2025, Progressive by Dec 2027 and Aspirational by 2030
