TrusTrace has formed a coalition of industry players to introduce a traceability ecosystem. The ecosystem aims at launching holistic solutions to the fashion industry’s biggest traceability and transparency challenges and this will happen as the development of a powerful integrated solution through seamless data integration and knowledge exchange has been planned.
TrusTrace is a supply chain solutions provider. Among the coalition of industry players are Higg, the Open Apparel Registry, Circle Fashion, Renoon and Haelixa. TrusTrace’s open architecture platform ensures the company is able to integrate seamlessly with other sustainability solution providers within this ecosystem. The first phase of traceability ecosystem launches with sustainability insights platform Higg and global apparel open-source database the Open Apparel Registry and will facilitate the integration of TrusTrace and Higg data sharing. This will help TrusTrace clients understand the social and environmental impact of their supplier facilities and their products by accessing their data from Higg on TrusTrace.
The integration will also help users understand the materials’ footprints in a single location and analyse supply chain and material combinations. Customers will also be able to access the Higg Facility Environmental Module and the Facility Social and Labor Module (FSLM) against their supplier facility profiles on TrusTrace to provide them with a single view of all the sustainability information for a facility.
