Notably, this is the highest certification offered by the ZDHC Road Map to Zero programme, which requires MRSL conformance for formulations and raw materials, and a chemical management audit.

Georgina Mawer, Head of Chem-MAP Consulting, said: “Companies undertaking the          Chem-MAP programme are giving a clear message that they are committed to sustainable chemistry. Syn-Bios achieving ZDHC MRSL Level 3 is highly commendable and is a positive step for chemical transparency and sustainability in the leather supply chain.”
