   Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC)

Everlight Chemical, a dye and functional chemicals manufacturer has become a ZDHC associate member and committed to ZDHC 2020 Joint Roadmap.

Everlight Chemical’s brand promise is Better Chemistry Better Life. Through the passionate pursuit of improvement and innovation, Everlight Chemical contributes to the successes of our customers. Our work helps create a better community and ensure a sustainable future. We believe that the intelligent application of chemistry can help make the world a better place.

Everlight Chemical recognizes the urgent need to eliminate the industrial releases of hazardous chemicals into the environment.  In line with the content of the Joint Roadmap and according to our approach in support of the Precautionary principle, Everlight Chemical fully acknowledges and understands the seriousness of the problem of hazardous chemicals and is committed to the goal of zero discharge of hazardous chemicals for all its products across all pathways of release (discharges, emissions and losses) in our supply chains (with a full life-cycle perspective) by 2020.

Everlight Chemical is fully committed to the content, actions and timelines outlined in the Joint Roadmap.  The scale and complexity of this endeavor make this a very challenging task. We will work collaboratively on this task through an active engagement with all stakeholders needed to create systems change, via an open and informed dialogue to satisfy this commitment.

Everlight Chemical also commits to support systemic (i.e., wider societal and policy) change to achieve zero discharge of hazardous chemicals by 2020. This commitment includes sustained investment in moving industry, government, science and technology to deliver on systemic change across the industry towards this goal.

If we are to deliver lasting solutions, our actions need to be guided by transparency, fact-based decision-making and based on a precautionary and integrated approach to chemicals management.  The goal of zero discharge by 2020 demands the collective action of industry and other stakeholders. We believe that the elimination of hazardous chemicals needs not only collaboration and partnership with our industry peers, but also a holistic and integrated approach.  We will apply value-chain as well as life-cycle thinking and innovation towards the development of integrated chemicals management. 

In order to achieve our goal of zero discharge of hazardous chemicals by 2020, mechanisms for disclosure and transparency about the hazardous chemicals used in our global supply chains are important and necessary. Disclosure, in line with the Right to Know principle, will be among the most challenging of issues as we continue towards the goal of zero discharge of hazardous chemicals by 2020. Although we see potential value in disclosure, we also believe that the strategy must be appropriate in order to achieve the desired impact.

Everlight Chemical understands the scope of the commitment to be a long term vision – with short term practice defined in the actions and timeline described in the Joint Roadmap.

To make this commitment a reality, Everlight Chemical will continue phasing out hazardous chemicals in our supply chain and we will accelerate the phase out of the highest priority hazardous chemicals. Everlight Chemical will continue to work with brands, material suppliers, the broader chemical industry, NGOs and other stakeholders to achieve this goal. We will drive towards innovative solutions for transparency in chemical management disclosure.
