AMSTERDAM – Greenpeace has used its latest Detox 'Catwalk' to launch a strongly worded critique of the work of the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) group, claiming the ZDHC's list of chemicals is "inadequate," while also repeatedly describing the ZDHC's chemical elimination system as "flawed". The latest version of its Detox Catwalk gives a top ranking to Inditex, H&M and Benetton but is deeply critical of Nike, claiming the US sports brand was the only company on the list to fail on all three of the 'Detox' categories it assessed – namely transparency, PFC elimination, and the implementation of a system for "eliminating hazardous chemicals that is proactive and precautionary."

Notably, for the first time, Greenpeace indicates that its Detox Campaign is moving beyond chemicals and even talks of looking at whether brands are 'closing the loop' in their manufacturing operations when it comes to waste and resource utilization.
