MAKING YOUR BUSINESS SUSTAINABLE

Organisations which demonstrate a commitment to sustainability can achieve a genuine
competitive edge, by gaining the confidence of clients, investors, consumers and the local
community.

Under the constant watch of governmental and non-governmental organizations, international
brands and retailers need to work with supply chain partners to reduce environmental impacts,
sustain controls over the use of toxic chemicals and proactively eliminate these chemicals from
the supply chain.

In response to the needs of the global industry to eliminate harmful substances from the supply
chain, Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services have developed a Chemical Discharge
Monitoring (CDM) Solution.

This solution is designed to help fashion retailers and brands know where they stand with
regards to water pollution in their supply chain via a combination of chemical management
policies, environmental auditing, water sample testing and reporting.

The service also includes establishing measures for continuous improvement.
