* C&A commits to eliminate the intentional use of APEO from all C&A products latest by 2020. All C&A products have to comply latest by 1st season 2017 with the
APEO limit value of 100 mg/kg, or the end of the grace period for C&A products to be fully compliant is season 1 (SN1) 2017.

The U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) identified suitable safer alternative surfactants /detergents to substitute APEO in the Program Design
for the Environment (DfE). The related list is available on the safer chemical ingredients list (SCIL) at the following link:

Water based PU Material:


Water based Polyurethane (PU) is waterborne & Dimethylformamide (DMFa) solvent-free PU = sustainable PU leather
C&A recommends to our suppliers to used water based polyurethane dispersions (PUDs), which show all the properties of regular PU leather but that eliminates the use of organic solvents (DMFa) and processes that consume considerable amounts of
water and energy from the manufacturing process.

Elimination of the hazardous chemical DMFa:


Conventional PU leather is processed in DMFa , a solvent which is classified as a substance of very high concern (Restricted in table 4.22 Chemical No. 34), whereas water based produced PU requires no organic solvents like DMFa for manufacture or
processing, eliminating potential worker and consumer exposure.

Reduction of the water consumption (less water):


The conventional PU leather production process consumes large quantities of water to rinse away the solvent from the synthetic material, whereas the water based PU dispersion technology does not require the use of water baths for the processing.

Energy consumption:
The conventional PU leather process employs washing baths that are constantly heated to facilitate the process. The wet product must be dried completely. Finally, DMFa is reclaimed from contaminated water in a an energy intensive process. In contrast,
water based PU production does not need washing baths, follow up drying of wet synthetic leather and final reclaiming of the DMFa, which saves a lot of energy.

Alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEO) belong to a group of non-ionic surfactants including
NPEOs and OPEOs, which are widely used as auxiliary chemicals in different industries. Disperse dyes are generally water-insoluble colorants that are mainly used for coloring
They can be found in Detergents, scouring agents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, softeners, polyester, nylon and cellulose acetate textile fibers. They have extremely high light

Biocides are biologically active substances, and their toxic and biocidal nature enables
them to kill or harm living things. Since biocides by nature are used to have detrimental
effects on biological organisms, they are at the same time a serious threat to living
organisms that were not intended to be controlled. Biocides have adverse effects on the

formulations, a minor or trace amount of the restricted substance is

The ZDHC MRSL includes relevant substances from the original 11 priority
chemical groups in the Joint Roadmap (2) along with additional substances
discussed with qualified experts from the ZDHC Technical Advisory
Committee (TAC) and signatory brands. Several of the listed substances are _____________________________________________________________

MRSL Groups
Group A: Raw Material and Finished Product Supplier Guidance
Group A substances are banned from intentional use in facilities that process
raw materials and manufacture finished products. Please refer to the AFIRM
guidance document for the lowest agreed upon material or finished product
limits among AFIRM brands: http://afirm-group.com/afirm-rsl/. See brand
RSLs for individual requirements.

Group B: Chemical Supplier Formulation Limit


Group B substances are restricted to concentration limits in chemical
formulations commercially available from chemical suppliers. These limits
ban intentional use while allowing for reasonable expected manufacturing
impurities that should be consistently achievable by responsible chemical
manufacturers(3).

____________________________________________________________
(3) Safety Data Sheets (SDS) only list substances present at concentrations of 1000 ppm or greater. Suppliers
must communicate with chemical suppliers to ensure MRSL limits are met.
