The Intersection of Fashion and Sustainability

Navigating the Complexity of Environmental Impact Measurement

The fashion industry is increasingly under scrutiny for its environmental footprint, with growing calls for transparency and accountability. The newly launched interface between Infor and Made2Flow comes as a timely response to the fashion brands looking to become more sustainable and transparent. This interface aims to simplify the intricate processes involved in calculating the environmental impact of garments, from CO2 emissions to water consumption.

Filling the Data Gaps: The Power of Real-time Insights

Turning Data into Actionable Strategies

One of the most challenging aspects of sustainability in fashion is the lack of reliable data. The Infor-Made2Flow interface is designed to overcome these data gaps by capturing information from every aspect of the supply chain. This enables brands to gain real-time insights and predefined metrics, transforming the formerly nebulous area of sustainability into something quantifiable and actionable.

“Thanks to our Bill of Processes (BOP) engine, we manage to normalize data and allow brands and suppliers to understand their impact hotspots,” notes Tal Shogol, CEO of Made2Flow.

Regulatory Compliance and Beyond

Aiding in PEFCR and Digital Product Passport Adherence

Upcoming regulations like the Product Environmental Footprint Category Rules (PEFCR) and Digital Product Passport are set to impose stringent sustainability benchmarks on fashion brands. The Infor-Made2Flow interface will not just aid in regulatory compliance but will also serve as a tool for brands to self-impose higher sustainability standards.

The Future of Fashion Sustainability: What Lies Ahead

Towards a Low-Impact Industry

Made2Flow’s advanced technologies coupled with Infor’s comprehensive solutions will serve as a catalyst for a new era of sustainable fashion. The partnership is rooted in the belief that meaningful collaboration is crucial for the transition to a low-impact industry.

“Developing regulations force fashion brands to use impact measurement not only as a consumer-facing solution but also for internal purposes to control impact reduction activities in real-time. Thanks to the collaboration and interface with Infor, brands will be able to accurately measure their sustainability efforts and drive to faster impact reduction as an intuitive working tool and increase their sustainability ROI. At Made2flow, we are great believers in partnerships such as this one; it is the only way to transition to a low-impact industry,” says Tal Shogol.

The collaboration between Infor and Made2Flow marks a significant milestone in the fashion industry’s journey towards sustainability. By offering real-time insights and data-driven solutions, this interface promises to be a game-changer in the way fashion brands measure, report, and improve their environmental impacts. In a world where sustainability is no longer a buzzword but a business imperative, the Infor-Made2Flow partnership offers a blueprint for the industry’s sustainable future.
