Measure Supply Chain Carbon Footprint in 72 Hours
Ecodesk today launched KickStart, a sustainability program designed to help businesses and organizations implement supply chain sustainability initiatives for the first time.
The cloud-based program can help public and private SMEs measure their entire supply chain for carbon emissions in just 72 hours, Ecodesk says.
KickStart also provides each organization with an analysis of supplier and product category impacts based initially on 100 product categories (see image).
By analyzing an extract of a purchase ledger, Ecodesk says it can provide a carbon footprint of an entire supply chain by mapping purchase ledger data with leading Economic Input/Output (EIO) database CEDA, which has provided scope 3 emission data for global companies and government agencies including Coca-Cola Enterprises and the EPA.
Ecodesk CEO Mark Plant says his company wants to make it easier for businesses that need to understand their supply chain impacts but are daunted by the task and don’t know where to start.
