Communicate Your Impact When Manufacturing Ethically and Sustainably with Impact Reports
We strive to answer ‘how do the products we produce and sell impact the world’? One of the ways TO THE MARKET does this is by producing Impact Reports for many of the products we source and manufacture. Many people would like to make a positive difference when buying things, but don’t really know how. With TO THE MARKET Impact Reports, we have the data to show consumers the impact they can make when choosing more eco-friendly products. We create reports specifically for apparel, accessories, and home goods so you and your customers can see the real and meaningful positive impact.
Collecting and Measuring Impact Report data
We believe that it’s empowering to know the positive environmental and social impact that your products make - which is why we collect both quantitative and qualitative data on a per order basis.
The data varies for each product. Some of the information gathered measures savings in carbon emissions, energy usage, water usage, as well as a number of fair wage hours of work created.
2. What does our qualitative impact data include?
In an effort to give you full transparency, our qualitative information includes testimonies from the makers, manufacturing practices, and photo assets of workers, which helps with telling the story of how that specific product was made.
3. How do we gain more data to provide a fuller picture for impact reporting?
Through our proprietary TRACE vetting system and engagement with our 250+ makers around the world, we are able to obtain data on a variety of important sustainability and ethical manufacturing metrics, such as the maker’s employee demographics, workplace policies, certifications, and factory’s environmental policies.
Product Impact Report Breakdown
Each product has a different set of metrics and data that we have access to so consumers gain insights into how they are making a difference by purchasing sustainably and ethically sourced apparel, accessories, and home goods.
For consumers interested in ethically sourced apparel, for example, we provide a full product breakdown for further visibility into the impact by product type. Some of the data measured for apparel manufacturing can include:
