SCOPE 3 EMISSIONS MANAGEMENT
Trace emissions to the deep end of the food supply chain
Do you really expect data quality and supplier engagement from spreadsheets and emails? Let emissions data flow automatically across your supply chain and track climate performance from farm to shelf in real-time.
ARCHITECTURE FOR THE ENTIRE SUPPLY CHAIN
Command Scope 3 with the
AUTOMATED SUPPLIER ENGAGEMENT
The road to primary data: Fully automated
Collecting Scope 3 data with manual methods is the reason why Scope 3 data is still elusive. It doesn’t have to be – social networks already proved that connectivity is a problem solved by digital infrastructure. CarbonCloud solves connectivity for the food system.
Automatically request climate footprints from your suppliers and increase your data granularity. Your suppliers can do the same with their suppliers and your emissions map will be automatically updated with their results.
Supply chain emissions done digitally and by the producers closer to the data – no more emails, no more spreadsheets.
How does automated supplier engagement work?
How do I set up a Scope 3 project?
Your company and your suppliers can exchange climate data in CarbonCloud. CarbonCloud's digital infrastructure is developed for the food industry to strategically work with climate change and supply-chain management.
Strategic work usually starts with mapping out the climate footprints on a product level to get your GHG emission baseline and then moving down the supply chain to involve suppliers and calculate their emissions.
Insights from this process guide your company on how to best proceed. Which additional data to collect to increase resolution where it matters the most, which products to focus efforts on, and which suppliers to engage for the highest ROI relating to actionable insights and data.
Then you can start engaging suppliers on the platform to let them take ownership over their part of the calculation and in the same process, increase granularity and data quality in the assessments. This can be done for all ingredients and tier 1 suppliers as a first step, or some ingredients and suppliers and all the way down to agriculture.
The end goal is usually to map all suppliers all the way but the timeline for this is driven by the climate and transparency ambitions of your company and your suppliers.
CarbonCloud never asks for GHG emissions for any process. For consistency, all emissions are calculated by the platform. All questions relate to production processes with a focus on information that is readily available to the producers and suppliers.
How do I engage my suppliers?
CarbonCloud offers a complete integration for companies in the supply chain. This enables our customers' suppliers to share their climate footprints in a seamless and automatic fashion with you. Being a SaaS platform, CarbonCloud takes full responsibility for onboarding each supplier, and based on a few input parameters from the supplier, CarbonCloud calculates and maps out their GHG emissions.
Suppliers work with the platform directly and in a similar way to your company. They all go through the same process of Automated Mapping based on readily available information, followed by an iterative process of improvement of the data as they learn what matters, which data to look for, and what to measure. They equally get a richness of insights in this process, a platform for understanding their own emissions, identifying improvement potentials, and run scenarios.
You can see which suppliers perform better and how they develop over time. Well-performing suppliers can leverage this in tenders; it will be worthwhile for them to walk the extra mile and make the investments and changes needed to lower their emissions in line with your climate ambitions.
Can you map out our complete supply chain?
Yes! One of the many great benefits of CarbonCloud’s solution is that it is based on a digital network architecture, which enables us to visualize GHG emissions from your total footprint to each supplier’s footprint all the way down to farm level.
You have an overview that is kept up to date and the possibility to zoom in and out to gain insights from actionable data. All suppliers also have access to actionable data and insights into their emissions, which are kept up to date, with real-time results.

How to set up a Scope 1/2/3 pilot for success
Test out your ways of working with your supply chain and new tools for minimum risk and maximum gain – with the existing resources, and most importantly, with existing data. Download our guide and streamline how to use the resources and data you already have to set up a successful emissions management pilot for any Scope, tailored to the needs of your organization.
SCOPE 3 REPORTING
Report supply chain emissions with harmonized, quality data
No matter what your reporting framework asks, easily report and motivate your supply chain data granularity. When financial disclosures request for plans to obtain scope 3 data, show them the numbers. Confidently compose your sustainability report with harmonized, fresh data, and avoid the hassle of consolidating and updating your emissions metrics.
The data from CarbonCloud allows us to focus on the things that truly matter. Now we want to collaborate with our suppliers and customers to reduce our climate impact together.
HOW TO: SUPPLY CHAIN ENGAGEMENT
From first-touch to primary data in weeks
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.
