In 2022, ZDHC announced the release of the updated ZDHC Man-Made Cellulosic Fibres (MMCF) Guidelines Version 2.1 and its supporting document. It is important to note that with this update, the ZDHC MMCF Guidelines V2.1 now include the Responsible Fibre Production Guidelines, Wastewater Guidelines and Air Emissions Guidelines as three separate chapters in a single document.
Along with the ZDHC Man-Made Cellulosic Fibres (MMCF) Guidelines V2.1, ZDHC has also updated its ZDHC MMCF Guidelines Industry Standard Implementation Approach. 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 Levels on our Supplier Platform.
The updated questionnaire, launched in 2023, reflects the changes and updates in the updated Man-Made Cellulosic Fibres Guidelines Version 2.1.
