2degrees, one of the world’s leading digital collaboration platform providers for sustainable business, has announced that House of Fraser, the UK and Ireland’s premium department store group has joined its Manufacture 2030 platform. The association will help House of Fraser to cement its place as a responsible retailer and drive resource efficiency.

Driving environmental improvements in its house brand supply chain across home and fashion, the retailer is focused on reducing its contribution to climate change by cutting energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions; and on preventing and reducing the consumption of resources, water and waste generation. This will be achieved by encouraging its suppliers to use the Manufacture 2030 bee, a digital tool designed to help manufacturing brands more easily identify, investigate and implement resource efficiency gains across their operations.

With the majority of retail businesses’ carbon footprint being held in supply chains (it can be up to 80 per cent), the retailer has identified Manufacture 2030’s digital, collaborative platform as a key support to achieve scale whilst making resource efficiency easier to deliver.

"There has never been a clearer business case for resource efficiency, as it drives cost and reputational benefits. The platform’s success in delivering this, along with solving both site and enterprise-level challenges is a reason why leading brands such as House of Fraser and The Co-op are partnering with us. We are delighted that a brand with the stature of House of Fraser has signed up, and we hope to work closely with them to help improve their sustainable output," Martin Chilcott, founder & CEO, 2degrees said.

"Our partnership with 2degrees and The Manufacture 2030 platform aims to drive resource efficiency and embed good environmental practice across our supply chain," Dr Dorothy Maxwell, head of sustainability, House of Fraser. (RR)
