Global performance footwear and apparel company Brooks Running has selected the TrusTrace platform to deepen visibility across its manufacturing supply chain and help identify and mitigate sourcing and business continuity risks.

 “Visibility into the factories that manufacture Brooks products, materials and raw materials is critical to ensure the responsible sourcing standards outlined in our Supplier Code of Conduct are upheld,” said Dave Kemp, director of corporate responsibility at Brooks. “The expansive and complex nature of our manufacturing supply chain makes this visibility difficult. TrusTrace enables us to identify and mitigate responsible sourcing and business continuity risks and increase due diligence for customs compliance.”

At the end of 2022, 100% of Tier 1 Brooks factories were using TrusTrace, with more than 130 Tier 2 and more than 70 Tier 3 factories invited to the platform. Looking ahead, Brooks will use TrusTrace to trace at the individual product level, enabling deeper transparency for consumers.

The TrusTrace platform provides brands with verified data in real-time, as materials and finished goods move through the supply chain. Through its open architecture, it integrates seamlessly with retailer, manufacturer and supplier systems, as well as other third-parties, such as certification agencies, lifecycle datasets and other sustainability solution providers.
