A true-digital solution to supplier engagement & Scope 3 data

The biggest challenge in food emissions...​

Food represents a quarter of global emissions and over 80% of those are in the deepest end of the supply chain. To make this more challenging, the food supply chain is like no other: It is ever-changing, deep, opaque, and with no set pathways to exchange emissions data. Scope 3 data is the biggest hurdle right now for emissions reductions in the food system.
How can the food industry localize emissions in the supply chain and support those who can reduce them?
Certainly not with emails, spreadsheets, and requests for sensitive trade secrets. The Scope 3 challenge is a connectivity problem with a singular and known solution: A digital network.

Did you know?

Purchased goods and services alone account for 2/3 of the total climate footprint of food and beverage companies.

...can only be solved by a digital network.

CarbonCloud automates climate information exchange among suppliers and vendors and activates the potential to reduce up to 90% of a company’s emissions –  with speed, efficacy, and privacy.

CarbonCloud’s digital network enables players throughout the food system to digitally connect in the platform and seamlessly exchange the emissions data that matters: The climate footprint of each commodity.

The digital twin for every product at store shelf affords an automatic transition from proxy data to primary data with every new supplier onboarded on the network.

Parallel to the scale-up of primary data, users can compare commodities and ingredients on the basis of their climate footprint and integrate supply chain reductions into their operative flow.

But the truth about digitalizing
Scope 3 is...​

Connecting the supply chain to mapping out emissions is a massive, top-of-mind challenge the entire food industry is trying to solve. Food companies are venturing into connecting their own networks, consultancy firms are simply taking over the manual labor of scavenging scope 3 data on behalf of their clients, and many SaaS services employ the email & spreadsheet combo with little embedment in their platforms. 

CarbonCloud is a food supply chain digital network by design (It was born this way). Supply chain modeling with real-time climate data connectivity is our platform’s architecture. The climate footprint calculation engine in CarbonCloud is merely a necessary feature – the digital network for emissions data in the food supply chain is the infrastructure.

And to solve a challenge this big, to successfully embed climate optimization into the food industry’s day-to-day operations and to do it in time, the food industry can’t rely on hacks. The food system needs the infrastructure that integrates climate change management as seamlessly, as accurately, as easily as possible.

Climate transparency will define the net-zero market for food: are companies doing enough?

How it works

It doesn't take months to get your hands on your emissions map – really. Let computers do the calculations and focus on making your products climate-smart and letting the world know
You: Input the data you work with on a daily

Simply list the portfolio data you already know by heart – product name, ingredients, country of origin, GTIN number.

CarbonCloud: Automated emissions modeling

Automated Modeling, our AI emissions mapping engine, scans your input, programmatically matches each product to its supply chain model, and calculates the climate footprint

You: Invite your suppliers

Send your suppliers an automatic invitation to provide their climate footprints. Your suppliers receive a notification and get onboard

Your suppliers: Input their primary data

Once your suppliers have input their production data, Automated Modeling improves the data quality of their products' climate footprints in your view and your suppliers can access their digital twin.

You: Track supplier performance & increase data quality

The more your suppliers (and their suppliers) get involved, the higher your data and insight quality gets. Your view is automatically updated in real-time and you can track supplier performance against your shared climate targets.
