Zero Discharge Chemical Risk Assessments

Measure whether input streams, such as chemicals, raw materials and trim, as well as output streams, such as wastewater discharge, reach certain performance metrics for risk identification and future improvement, with chemical risk assessments from SGS.

As the textile and footwear supply chains strive for the zero discharge goal, they must demonstrate compliance to the Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL) and Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) target for wastewater and sludge discharges. For this we can offer services including sampling and testing, as well as factory assessments. Finding details can also be used for formal data disclosure.

Chemical Risk Assessments

Supporting the textile and footwear industries’ drive to meet the Zero Discharge goal, we have developed a number of services that will help manufacturers, retailers and all active participants in the textiles supply chain to play their role:

  • Chemical screening
  • Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL) testing
  • Wastewater testing and benchmarking
  • Higg Index verification

Our unique Trio Approach provides a one-stop-shop for screening, testing and verification.
