The first G-Star MODE Tracker has been published by MADE-BY. This independent verification and progress tracking tool publicly shows our year-on-year sustainability results in a clear and approachable way.
The MODE Tracker is an updated version of MADE-BY’s previous Scorecard system that G-Star published with MADE-BY since 2012, and gives a holistic overview of our sustainability achievements. The MODE Tracker assesses progress on eight sustainability areas: People, Product, Manufacturing, Packaging & Transport, Own Operations, Use & Durability, Product Waste and Transparency.
We are proud to be part of this groundbreaking process to make the fashion industry more transparent. Our CR Director Frouke Bruinsma explains: “As well as giving us a comprehensive overview of the strengths and gaps in our approach to sustainability, this process has led to a strategic insight on how to further improve our sustainability performance. MODE Tracker enables us to be transparent in a credible way; to our customers, the industry and critical stakeholders. We are proud to be among the first group of companies to work with it. It represents the way forward for the industry and we therefore invite other fashion companies to also take this step.”
