Customer Success Story
How a Dutch fashion brand is becoming more sustainable with Ecochain
One of our clients – a Dutch female fashion brand – signed the Dutch Agreement on Sustainable Garment and Textile. This meant they needed to define reduction targets for 2023 and create transparency within their supply chain.
The fashion supply chain is extremely complex. But how can an international fashion brand with thousands of products set goals if they don’t have insights into their supply chain?
Together with Ecochain, the brand modeled different user scenarios to investigate the environmental hotspots in its supply chain. The company was able to identify 3 key areas in which it could significantly reduce their environmental emissions. The result? A clear roadmap to create clear reduction goals and reach them.

Our Environmental Management System provides a framework to manage and optimize bidding and tendering processes for contractors and suppliers
The construction sector is responsible for approximately 20% of global CO2 emissions. This implies that the sector has a great potential to make an impact. Relatively small efforts can have a strong effect. Public contracting authorities have recognized this and are raising the bar with environmental regulations to stimulate the sector, which generally impacts civil engineering and infrastructure projects first.
Integrated Environmental Intelligence can help the construction sector to maximize sustainable returns
Environmental Intelligence supports contractors and suppliers to gain insight into the hotspots of their value chain and collaborate more effectively with value chain partners to improve their green biddings and the overall design of sustainable infrastructure projects.
Construction material suppliers benefit from readily available product footprint information (LCAs and EPDs)
For material suppliers, it is increasingly important to have product footprint information readily available to help contractors to develop a winning bidding. Environmental Intelligence enables you to calculate the LCAs and EPDs of your complete product portfolio efficiently, and inform contractors (proactively) about the environmental performance of your products. This builds your competitive advantage as a go-to provider of sustainable materials.
It will also help you to identify environmental hotspots in your portfolio and apply product structure modeling to optimize your Bills of Materials. For example, concrete and asphalt producers use Environmental Intelligence to experiment with different mix designs to find their greenest mix.
Civil design contractors benefit from insights in supply chain hotspots
For contractors, the environmental performance of a project design is becoming a determining factor to create a winning tender.
Integrated Environmental Intelligence empowers you with a complete oversight and insight into the sustainability performance of your suppliers and enables you to fine-tune the most favorable price-sustainability ratio. This helps to optimize and speed up the bidding processes significantly.
Build a competitive advantage together
Environmental Intelligence enables the construction sector to manage and share integrated environmental information with value chain partners.
This allows material suppliers and contractors to collaborate effectively and increase the sustainability of their projects. Together, they can create winning tender bids with innovative sustainability solutions.
