Reduce your impact

Sustainable supply chain

Managing sustainability within your entire supply can be a challenge due to multiple suppliers in different tiers. How do you create a more sustainable supply chain? It starts with measuring your product’s environmental impact. By using our LCA software solutions you can assess every phase and activity in your product’s supply chain. Get accurate insights across the entire life cycle of your product, so that you can take actions and achieve a more sustainable product supply chain.

How to create a sustainable supply chain with Ecochain

Assess suppliers and materials

Evaluate your suppliers based on environmental impact data. Access comprehensive data on the environmental impacts associated with almost every imaginable material and look into the extraction, processing, transportation, and different waste treatment options. Compare the results and identify potential new materials with lower footprints across all impact categories and life cycle phases.

Connect with suppliers

With Ecochain Helix you are capable of connecting with your suppliers. By using their LCA results you can then improve the accuracy of your LCAs. No need to share sensitive production data, only connect with environmental footprint (LCA) results, and share these with your suppliers or customers.

Zoom into hotspots

Measure environmental footprints within your entire supply chain, from sourcing raw materials to production processes, product(s), their use and even waste treatment. Consider factors like energy consumption, water usage, waste generation, or specific emissions. Identify the major contributors to your impact and make necessary changes to improve the sustainability in your supply chain.

Multi-level insights

View footprint results on a supply chain, company, processes, product and material level. Identify high-impact products and materials and prioritize your R&D initiatives to concrete actions that truly make a difference.
