Challenges 

  • Measuring the carbon footprint of a product collection is a major hurdle fashion brands face when wanting to decarbonize, especially for brands like Adore Me who want to reduce their impact while keeping prices affordable.
  • Conducting an accurate life-cycle assessment (LCA) for just one fashion style can take weeks or months and cost up to $15,000. The results are static and just a snapshot of the past.
  • One of the biggest challenges Adore Me faced in their journey to decarbonize was aligning the different stakeholders in design, production, marketing, and compliance, all with their own agendas, around the same sustainability data.

Solution 

  • Adore Me needed a solution that could fast and reliably measure the carbon footprint of the thousands of products it designs every year, at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. 
  • Adore Me wanted to partner with a technology solution that could run accurate, and real-time LCA for their entire product catalog in a scalable way.
  • From raw materials to supplier selection, Carbonfact’s carbon management platform empowers Adore Me’s design and production teams to identify key areas in the supply chain, where they can make improvements to lower the environmental footprint of their catalogue.
