EMBRACING ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY WITH DIGITAL PRODUCT PASSPORT (DPP)
JML Apparel is proud to be actively participating in the Digital Product Passport (DPP) program organized by the European Commission. This transformative initiative brings transparency and traceability to the entire lifecycle of a product. As a company committed to the values of sustainability, responsible sourcing, and circularity within the textile and apparel industry, our involvement in the DPP program underscores our dedication to advancing these crucial principles.
In support of the DPP initiative, JML has developed a comprehensive suite of customizable tools and products designed to enhance transparency and traceability. This suite includes an online ordering and database system, a branded digital product passport, and QR-scanning-enabled products. The integration of these tools represents a significant step forward in providing customers with quick and accurate access to vital information such as factory location, material certifications, and sustainability details. By leveraging QR code scans, our customers can effortlessly access manufacturing and sustainability information, fostering greater transparency about the materials we source and the environmental impact of our products.
