Raw Materials Management

Brands, retailers and manufacturers need to find sustainable alternatives to materials that depend on high usage of water, energy, natural resources and harmful chemicals.

Centric PLM provides a platform to track and manage raw materials from their source, measure key sustainability criteria and identify suitable alternatives.

Carbon Footprint

One digital space for product information enables end-to-end traceability that includes carbon footprint data through integration with the HIGG raw materials index and Trustrace material database.

Powerful sourcing comparison tools make it easier to understand the impact of different sourcing options and reduce the environmental cost of shipping, support local producers and make supply chains more transparent.

Waste Management

Centric PLM improves visibility and accuracy throughout the entire supply chain to lessen waste, reduce or eliminate the disposal of unwanted or unsold inventory and dramatically reduce costs associated with overstock storage.

Integration with 3D technology reduces physical sampling costs and cuts development time to increase product margins.

Supply Chain Certification

Track suppliers and their certifications, using whatever paper trail complies with your company requirements.

Manage compliance programs and vendor certification, from raw materials to labor practices to the recyclability of packaging.

Ensure transparency for consumers.

Social Responsibility

Document data at the product and factory levels to validate claims surrounding sustainability and ethics.

Set audit criteria to conform to labor, carbon footprint, resource and waste management standards.

Manage supply chains and customer communication with a truly open, quality-focused and personal approach.

Circularity

Design and develop product lines using consumer feedback, gather data on real-world product faults and repairs to inform manufacturers and improve quality, source durable materials more cost-effectively and innovate products that are designed for long service life.

Access environmental impact data to determine product end-of-life options.

For us, the carbon score is first and the margin is second. So, before we even look at the margin, we will look at whether or not we’re achieving the carbon score that we set out for ourselves. — Joe Vernachio, Chief Operating Officer at allbirds
