Traceability: the report on the lessons learned from the DEFI pilot project is online #768


On 23 June, ADEME published the report on the lessons learnt from the traceability pilot project in the clothing sector carried out between 2020 and 2022 by DEFI as part of the traceability project of the Comité Stratégique de Filière Mode & Luxe.

The pilot project selected two traceability solutions, Retraced and Fairly Made, from more than 20 studied, and tested them in 13 companies that were representative of the industry in terms of market segment, size and experience in this area. The aim of the project was to draw lessons for accelerating the deployment of traceability within the industry and to help companies meet both regulatory requirements and consumer expectations.
