the goals: identify, trace, manage

The Materials 4sustainability® protocol is created to support the companies in the fashion supply chain in the upstream definition of priority actions, in the informed procurement of sustainable raw materials, in the gathering and management of data for calculating the percentage substituted of the total amount of raw materials used in the production cycle.

certification: an important aspect

We help businesses to find their way through the jungle of environmental labels and brands created to guarantee the sustainable content of raw materials, selecting the most credible and appropriate for the relative market: FSC, GOTS, GRS, RWS
As the adoption of each of these brands/labels is dependent on the possession of certain requirements, the support also extends to all of the practical activities necessary to obtain the certification and subsequent renewals, right up to the audit by the certifying body.

the release: a performance report

The long-term benefit of adopting the Materials 4sustainability® protocol is a personalised mapping, raw material by raw material, of the sustainable alternatives. These are patented products that are already on the market, global initiative to participate in, such as the Better Cotton Initiative or, alternatively, of certifications to add to those already acquired in order to reinforce commitment and improve reputation. The initiatives set in motion following the initial mapping will allow for the annual reporting on the important KPIs in terms of raw materials.
