Transparency: Our Impact

Creating positive social and environmental impacts is truly the only reason why we are on this journey. We believe that companies have a key role to solve social problems by rethinking existing market models, and we think that the companies that will thrive tomorrow are the ones who reconcile purpose and profit.

 

At Trace Collective, shifting capital to create social and environmental returns sits at the heart of our strategy. That's why we've worked with external audit partners to rigorously assess our environmental impact, and why we choose, and will continue to choose, to partner with other social businesses that give work to disenfranchised populations. 

Fashion today is deeply eroding our environment, and has become one of the last trenches for worker exploitation across the world. But fashion can also help us regenerate our economies, our planet, and develop new transparency-based supply chain models to help us re-image other industries. Are you in?
