A digital product passport for a full product transparency that enables brands to understand the impact of their decisions and accelerate impact reduction.
ColorDigital GmbH, with its interactive collaboration platform DMIx, is proud to announce that Made2flow’s environmental impact measurement solution is offered as a new, optional module to DMIx.
Based on data gathered in DMIx master-data module “PaX” – the module called “DMIx ImpAct” delivers impact measurement values based on Made2flow’s unique data & technology. DMIx can now offer brands the ability to seamlessly source fabrics and trims according to their environmental impact, supporting their preferred material strategy
With the addition of this new Made2flow plugin, you can track impact measurement (CO2, water usage, land use and more) based on a scientific data analysis, LCA framework, ReCiPe midpoint calculations. The environmental impact is measured across the supply chain, unlocking fabric data and its suppliers (tier 2 and beyond). The technology will deliver a personalized environmental impact calculation based on a high level of primary data, identify impact hotspots across the supply chain and ultimately empower designers to design low impact products.
Both companies deliver solutions that help the industry become more sustainable and reduce its environmental footprint through digital automations, unique data validation technology,and standardized data collection.
“ImpAct for DMIx is the perfect example on how we enable our clients to use their allready existing data to empower their products and enable transparency based on valid facts.” says Gerd Willschütz, COO at ColorDigital.
“This exciting collaboration will enable brands to gain access to transparent, science-based environmental data of their fabric suppliers and beyond in a seamless manner, leading them to reach their Science Based Targets easier and faster” Tal Shogol, CEO of Made2flow
