MADE-BY is a not-for-profit organisation with a mission to 'make sustainable fashion common practice'.
Founded in 2004 with a multi–stakeholder board, it focuses on the improvement of social and environmental conditions throughout the entire value chain of the apparel, footwear and home textile sector. MADE-BY works with international fashion brands, apparel retailers and their suppliers on the full scope of sustainability aspects including strategy development, implementation support and capacity building.
MADE-BY is furthermore known for its transparent and verified progress tracking tool MODE Tracker, which measures and communicates year-on-year progress on a range of key impact areas. The organisation is also engaged in multi-stakeholder projects with national governments and the European Commission, such as the European Clothing Action Plan with a focus on circular economy. At the heart of MADE-BY's effort to transform the sector towards more sustainability are a holistic approach to due diligence, supply chain transparency and the active engagement of all supply chain partners.
