FAQ

Crunch time? Let's get down to it

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

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.

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.
