Infor Extends Commitment to Sustainability in Fashion with Made2Flow Partnership
Infor recently announced one of their newest partnerships with Made2Flow, a tech company specializing in analysis and validation of environmental data in the fashion industry. Infor and Made2Flow together will support global fashion brands looking to increase transparency of the production supply chain through traceability and impact measurement solutions. Per the press release, consumer-driven interest in the environmental impact of purchases is driving the fashion industry and brand owners towards providing more information on the sustainable credentials of their products. The only way to understand how sustainable different products are is by measuring their environmental impact in relation to CO2, water and other environmental indicators. This is a complex and lengthy process, with tight engagement from brands and their production partners to gather, normalize and validate necessary data. With Infor’s help, Made2Flow can support this process through automating environmental impact calculations, which leverage machine learning to bridge potential gaps, to provide credible and transparent results. Further, Infor’s product lifecycle management (PLM) capabilities will dovetail with the Made2Flow platform, providing crucial data for impact measurement purposes, with the collaboration set to enable fashion companies to continuously measure the environmental impact of products to meet targets and reassure stakeholders.
