MADE-BY’s extended Transparency Solutions offer was developed to directly address the struggles that brands and retailers have faced in gaining supply chain traceability. Transparency Solutions gives you the tools and guidance to create a successful transparency programme and supports them to use this information to improve the sustainability of their supply chains.
MADE-BY has over 10 years of experience working with brands and retailers to implement successful mapping and traceability initiatives. Based on our experience, we recognised the need for scalable, flexible and easy to use tools to support companies in gaining greater visibility into the products and processes within their supply chain. Many brands are required to work with individual tools or platforms for a specific commodity or material type, but now, they will be able to conduct all supply chain transparency work in one place supported by MADE-BY, on one IT platform developed by GTS.
MADE-BY Transparency Solutions offers:
A flexible platform
Partnering with GTS, our tailored IT platform allows you to complete supply chain mapping, sustainability due diligence and product led traceability for all material types simultaneously. This means that brands and retailers can now trace animal derived materials, conduct risk assessments of wet processing suppliers and map wood based materials suppliers all in one place.
Questionnaires that capture data on all the issues
We send our easy to use questionnaires to your suppliers to map their relationships. As we are fashion focused, our questionnaires cover the key social and environmental issues for each supplier type within the fashion industry.
Validated results that give you the required insights
We review your questionnaire results, validating for accuracy and follow-up with suppliers to clarify feedback. We give you confidence in your transparency project findings.
Visualise your supply chain & support issue resolution
Easily see an overview of your supply chain relationships.
Refine your overviews by supplier, function, location, product or sustainability criteria. This enables you to conduct custom root causes analysis of issues as they arise.
Risk Assessment & Action
We conduct risk assessments for you based upon supply chain mapping feedback and develop a workshop for you to better understand these risks and develop actions to reduce impacts.
Global Traceability Solutions (GTS)
In 2015 we partnered with Global Traceability Solutions (GTS) to launch an online platform to support fashion brands and retailers in gaining greater transparency within their supply chains. By partnering with GTS, an organisation with six years of experience in the timber industry driving forward cloud-based chain of custody management systems, we have been able to build off their existing platform and together create a bespoke transparency tool for the fashion industry.
- I strongly believe that MADE-BY’s updated Transparency Solutions offer fills a gap in the market. Never before have brands and retailers been able to conduct all their supply chain due diligence in one place, have this completely validated by an independent organisation and furthermore receive support on reducing risks and impacts of their supply chains.”
