ETrackit, the Textile Exchange electronic traceability system, is now commercially available for the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) and Recycled Content Standard (RCS), Its goal is to increase efficiency throughout the supply chain while also providing brands with the verified data they need to make confident product claims.
The system works by electronically tracking certified materials for each key product transformation, as well as every time products are transacted between a seller and a buyer. Business rules are built into the system, and inventories are transacted in real-time to reduce operational processing and data turnaround time.
eTransactions establish material accounting at the article level throughout the supply chain, which are dual verified by peer-to-peer validation and third-party certification body transaction approval. Each kilo of certified material is traced, providing real-time visibility of certified inventory transfers in a closed-loop supply chain.
Eligible, certified brands can now register for eTrackit and begin the process of supply chain mapping. H&M Group, Inditex, and Varner are among the brands supporting this new solution.
Throughout December, Textile Exchange will be hosting a series of virtual drop-in sessions to demonstrate the eTrackit system, talk through the eligibility requirements, and answer any stakeholder questions.
