MADE-BY adds new tools and services to consultancy packages

MADE-BY’s series of consultancy packages cover fashion’s key sustainability issues. Each package offers brands three distinct levels of engagement, starting with free-to-use awareness raising tools, through to strategy setting, trainings and brand level activities and advanced supply chain focused services.

To reflect the evolving needs within the industry and the skill set of our newly formed technical team, MADE-BY began developing new tools and adding new services to our package portfolio.
For the Sustainable Collection and Detox packages, MADE-BY initiated the development of new industry tools, including a Wet Processing Benchmark and Scorecard. These tools will promote more sustainable wet processing techniques and highlight brand performance on wet processing interventions. An update to the free Guide to Textile Wet Processing Standards will also be launched in spring 2014.

To add to MADE-BY’s existing expertise, we welcomed several new team members with extensive knowledge of chemistry and wet processing. Therefore, in addition to Detox package services such as capacity building trainings, strategy support and existing hazardous chemical management and substitution support, MADE-BY can now of fer brands chemical testing regime support, Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL) development support and a hotspot analysis of common Restricted Substance List (RSL) failure points. For the Leather package,MADE-BY can now also of fer a buyer's guide to sustainable leather, benchmarking tools and on-the-ground work with tanneries to implement industry chemical best practices.

MADE-BY will continue to update and develop existing consultancy packages and, in 2014, will be broadening out the current Performance Services offer. This will see MADE-BY update the existing reporting system and create a more holistic reporting framework which incorporates both existing tools and Scorecards, but also offers new topic areas for brands and stakeholders to engage with.
