ecoCentric sets out to create 'Green Leaders' in apparel industry

Nov '08
ecoCentric Ltd launched operations in the Mile High City of Denver, Colorado -- a place known for its ongoing commitment to environmental consciousness.

The company, which will focus its highly targeted efforts on the apparel industry, is dedicated to helping businesses strike a critical balance between corporate responsibility, profitability and company growth.

With more than 15 years of experience in the textile, apparel, uniform and related consumer products industries, ecoCentric is uniquely positioned to leverage long-standing, pragmatic experience in the certified production of organic cotton -- including eco-efficient manufacturing, supply chain management, energy and resource efficiency, sustainable development and more.

Working closely with each client, ecoCentric's industry-leading consultants help businesses develop proven, practical tools that dramatically reduce ecological impact and improve business transparency -- while increasing profitability and reducing risk.

"For apparel companies who want to be 'green leaders' and have measurable impact, two things must serve as the cornerstone of corporate sustainability programs: strategy and supply chain management," says ecoCentric's founder, Jerry Wheeler. "Contrary to popular belief, these two important pieces of the puzzle must come first; before design... before development... and before marketing."

Drawing upon an extensive business management background and intimate knowledge of the textile, apparel and consumer products industries, ecoCentric provides businesses with a holistic sustainability strategy -- one that considers not just the product, but how it is made and marketed.

At the foundation of ecoCentric's philosophy is an efficient, actionable 4-step plan designed to set this crucial cornerstone by helping companies learn to manage their business assets in ways that can have a dramatic impact on their integrated bottom line.

Their proven four-step F.A.S.T. Solution (Fair, Accountable, Sustainable, Transparent) enables companies to identify, implement and evaluate the steps necessary to enhance business assets through sustainable processes and practices.

And, unlike many corporate sustainability solutions, ecoCentric's F.A.S.T. program simplifies the entire process for streamlined implementation and seamless integration into company policies and practices.

"A well-thought-out sustainability strategy will impact more than sales," says Wheeler. "It will reduce risk and greenwashing, and positively impact brand equity, market share, company profits, customer loyalty, employee morale and more. ecoCentric is dedicated to helping companies make a dramatic difference in all these areas."

With his extensive experience in the retail, wholesale, uniform and manufacturing sectors of the apparel industry, Wheeler brings a unique perspective to sustainability consulting.

His extensive textile and apparel industry knowledge and intimacy with fashion and uniform apparel manufacturing and sales has driven the development of innovative insights, particularly in the areas of supply chain management, product development and marketing.

As founder and principal of ecoCentric, Wheeler is dedicated to helping apparel companies of all sizes increase transparency, streamline processes and develop healthy business practices -- with the ultimate goal of reducing environmental impact and improving the integrated bottom line.
