The Commitment of The ID Factory for Fashion Industry

Our mission is to lead the Fashion Industry towards a more responsible future by promoting the collection and sharing of data throughout the entire supply chain for sustainable production and conscious consumption.

We believe that transparency, traceability, and the measurement of impact are essential for building consumer trust and ensuring the quality and sustainability of products.

We strongly believe in reshaping the fashion industry, advocating for its transition into a system that gives back instead of taking.

But what does sustainability mean to us?

Our Definition of Sustainability for the Fashion Industry

Sustainability is not just a word; it’s a promise for the future of fashion industry.

We believe that sustainability is a never-ending journey; you will never be 100% sustainable. It’s about transforming the way we think, produce, and live.

In other words, we must commit to being better stewards of the resources we have, starting with the most essential element: data.

But how can we truly understand its deeper meaning? Let’s examine 4 key reflections on what it means to be sustainable in the world of fashion.

Choosing Supply Chains: Power in the Hands of Brands: Sustainability begins with a conscious choice of supply chains. The fashion industry has the power and the responsibility to opt for production paths that respect the environment and people. Choosing sustainable supply chains is not a luxury, but a duty.

Telling the Story: Beyond the Product : Every product has a story. A story that speaks of environmental, social, and economic impacts. Sustainability means being responsible for the choices made and sharing them in their entirety with the consumer. At the same time, each of us must be aware of the impact of the product we are purchasing.

Traceability – Measurement – Data – Information: At the foundation of it all, there is the principle that you cannot improve what you cannot measure. We believe that traceability is the heartbeat of sustainability. If we want to create truly sustainable products and services for the fashion industry, we must be able to trace every step of their life cycle. From the raw material to the final sale, every step must be verifiable, measuring and reducing impacts at every stage of the process.

Laws and regulations, such as the  such as the EU Corporate Due Diligence Directive, play a role in encouraging companies towards sustainable paths, putting traceability at the center of discussions and actions to reduce environmental impact.

But reducing impact is not the only way to revolutionize the fashion world.

The Circular Economy: The North Star Metric for the Fashion Industry

When people talk about the “Circular Economy,” they often focus only on the finished product. But there’s much more to it.

Our vision is clear: our tools serve the circular economy. Information on the composition of materials, verified along the supply chain and collected directly, linked to the digital passport of the finished product, will be crucial for implementing effective circular economy programs. The ultimate goal is to enable a true circular economy cycle and facilitate waste management.

The circular economy concerns not only the finished product but also unused material (deadstock – leftover). In fact, we have noticed that there is a discrepancy of 10% to 20% between materials purchased and those actually used.

This is where collaboration between brands and the supply chain comes into play, to identify and reuse these materials. This commitment represents an opportunity not just to reduce costs and operational inefficiencies but also to reduce environmental impact.
