The sustainable fashion NGO is publishing its annual report in an interactive, social and digital format to support communication transparency
Paris & London – June 10th, 2013, Wizness, the sustainability communication network, announced today that MADE-BY, the not-for-profit organisation working to drive sustainability within the fashion industry has published its annual report through the Wizness Publisher, an online service that helps companies publish interactive, social and digital sustainability reports and interact with their stakeholders.
“We are committed in our belief that sharing best practice and encouraging measurable progress is vital to improving social and environmental conditions within the fashion industry. Working with Wizness Publisher, we can communicate progress of brands in a more flexible and interactive format.” says Allanna McAspurn, CEO of MADE-BY.
To achieve this, MADE-BY works with fashion brands of varying sizes and scope, and supports them in developing sustainable strategies to improve conditions across their entire supply chain. MADE-BY helps brands communicate their sustainability progress in a transparent way through the MADE-BY Scorecard, which measures, benchmarks and tracks a brand’s progress year-on-year.
MADE-BY sought to publish its annual report in an interactive way that promoted two-way dialogue and the solution was found in the Wizness Publisher, a service launched by Wizness that enables organisations of all sizes to design and publish CSR reports online. The Publisher is one of the many Wizness tools that create value through enhanced sustainability communication.
The result is an interactive online platform that communicates the sustainability efforts of MADE-BY’s partner brands. The report includes features on MADE-BY’s activities supporting brands to ‘detox’ their supply chains, integrate sustainable materials and to extend the end life of clothing. The report also showcases MADE-BY’s new range of fashion specific sustainability packages.
With the Publisher, MADE-BY embarked on their 2.0 sustainability reporting journey, allowing them to:
• Present a web-based report customised to their brand
• Engage stakeholders anywhere and anytime on tablets or smartphones
• Start public conversations with their readers directly on the report
• Get their message spread widely across social media
The MADE-BY report is available on your desktop, tablet or smartphone at the following address: https://publisher.wizness.com/reports/made-by-annual-report-2012
