The Use Cases module is a peer-to-peer learning feature on the Supplier Platform, allowing suppliers to share their achievements with other suppliers striving to improve their sustainable chemical management. It showcases best practices and aims to inspire change in the industry. You can view and submit your Use Case at any time. The Use Cases Module is completely free of charge.
If your facility is registered on the Supplier Platform, you can view and submit Use Cases. Any supplier or manufacturing facility in the textile and leather sector whose operation processes involve the use and/or discharge of chemical products can use the Use Case solution.
Suppliers can access the Use Cases solution via the Supplier Platform. Use your Gateway login credentials to sign in and access this and other solutions like Supplier to Zero. If you’re a supplier and don’t have access yet, you can register on the Supplier Platform.
The Public Use Cases are freely accessible to every supplier registered on the Supplier Platform. They are not published outside of the Supplier Platform, neither on the ZDHC Gateway nor the Implementation HUB website.
By submitting your own Use Cases, you can gain recognition, visibility and buyer’s interest. Showing others how you could master challenges and implement the ZDHC guidelines like the ZDHC Chemical Management System (CMS) Framework will demonstrate your leadership in bringing positive change to the industry. Lead by example and set the bar for others. Inspire them and let them learn from your success story. Suppliers who publish Use Cases will further be invited to present their company’s strengths at our renowned conferences to international brands and retailers.
The Use Cases solution gives practical, inspiring examples of how a successful implementation of the ZDHC guidelines or related industry best practices can look like and how it can benefit a supplier.
