Our client, operating in the UK, specializes in environmental sustainability, offering Products Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) automation and SaaS services. With a global reach, they assist food companies in achieving their carbon neutrality goals by assessing the carbon footprint of their products, modeling emission scenarios, and evaluating progress.
The demand for sustainability in the food industry has surged, leading companies to conduct comprehensive analysis and reduction of their environmental impact.
The primary challenge was the vast size of the supply chain, presenting hurdles in performance, data preprocessing, and validation. The client, driven by carbon neutrality objectives, needed an efficient solution for assessing and minimizing the carbon footprint across its extensive supply chain.
Implementing carbon life cycle assessment methodologies proved instrumental in overcoming these challenges and achieving a holistic understanding of the environmental impact.
- Carbon footprint analysis of the supply chain
The collaboration focused on analyzing the supply chain’s carbon footprint. Understanding the intricate details from raw material extraction to disposal, including energy use, water consumption, waste generation, and emissions, was essential for pinpointing areas for reducing environmental impact and making sustainable business choices.
