Sustainable Apparel & Textile Products Design

Decision support for eco-design, circular use, compliance and resource stewardship

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Measuring sustainable

Existing sustainable design processes focus on individual components rather than enabling designers to interactively model whole product performance – including trims and embellishments – against a benchmark.

Data availability

Collecting data to make decisions about product sustainability can be difficult due to supplier’s ability to participate and concerns over intellectual property.

Decision support

No tools exist to easily measure and collaborate on product sustainability impacts across multiple product portfolios during the design process.

WHAT WE DO

  • null
    Provide a data and collaboration platform that brings together CSR teams, buyers & designers to:
    • Share information in a way that is focused on ease of use for quick decision making.
    • Encourage experimentation and “what if..” conversations on product performance across all dimensions simultaneously.
    • Manage the design and creation of a sustainable product in a repeatable way, using a structured platform.
  • null
    Make it easy to collect supply chain information

    Make it easy to collect supply chain information and motivate suppliers to provide information by focusing on value delivered to them as a primary driver.

  • null
    Create ‘middleware’ that pulls together and repurposes data from other systems.

    We pull together and use data from other systems (such as PLM, ERP). so sustainability can be part of the designing and buying process.

  • null
    Solve your challenge with a mission-specific, trans-disciplinary team.

    Solve your challenge with a mission-specific, trans-disciplinary team led by a domain expert, that includes interface design (for data inputs/outputs), data engineering and integration, and training, to provide an end-to-end solution.

WHY THAT’S DIFFERENT

  • Scalable, data-driven solution that combines sector expertise and modern technologies.
  • Leverages the largest, multi-dimensional product database, pre-loaded with environment, compliance, cost, risk, and deospatial data for design-stage evaluations.
  • Design-stage scoring for products with auto-fill of data from database for indexing.
  • Supports evolution towards combining eco-footprinting, circularity, social scores, and land-use change.
  • Supports other methodologies including the Higg’s MSL.
  • Made for secure collaboration and IP protection of multiple stakeholders.
