House of Fraser looks at improving its supply chain sustainability
House of Fraser will ask its home and fashion suppliers to use a new digital tool that will help them better identify and implement sustainability measures across their operations in a bid to reduce the business’ environmental impact.
This is part of a new partnership between the department store and Manufacture 2030, a digital collaboration platform created by 2degrees to drive cross-industry collaboration across retailers, brands and suppliers.
House of Fraser will encourage its house brand suppliers to use Manufacture 2030’s online tool M2030 bee, as the majority of retail businesses’ carbon footprint (up to 80%) can be held in supply chains.
Dorothy Maxwell, head of Sustainability at House of Fraser said: “Our partnership with 2degrees and the Manufacture 2030 platform aims to drive resource efficiency and embed good environmental practice across our supply chain."
The retailer aims to cut energy and water consumption, improve its greenhouse gas emissions, and reduce waste generation.
Other Manufacture 2030 partners include Mars, Johnson & Johnson, The Co-op, Wrap, The Carbon Trust and University of Cambridge.
