“Unique benefits make Carbonostics best-in-class”
Bluehorse Associates, a pioneer in the sustainability metrics field, has created a suite of online, user-friendly carbon accounting and product lifecycle assessment applications designed specifically for the food sector. This web-based tool provides easy access for collaboration across suppliers, vendors, clients, and advisors. All data is fully sourced, with links back to the original source provider and full descriptions on how each data point is calculated and by which methodology.
One judge’s summary: “Unique benefits — a focus on food and beverage sector, data-source transparency, diverse and impressive client list, the ability to enter your own primary data, the addition of cost and nutrition metrics – all combine to make Carbonostics best-in-class.”
Adopted by more than 200 users in more than 15 countries around the world, Carbonostics provides services to retail, food service, food manufacturing, ingredients manufacturing, consulting, and academia. Users can integrate analyses, so results from a product analysis can later be integrated into a facility-level analysis, or the results from an ingredients analysis can be integrated into a complex product analysis.
This system has been well thought out and meets business needs by being flexible, affordable, practical, and easy-to-use. Supported by experts with an in-depth understanding of the specific sensitivities of the food sector, Carbonostics impressed the judges with its increasing client list despite the narrow focus of the product. One judge noted that, “The lifecycle and carbon accounting features of the tool are very important to track impacts in non-integrated supply chains. Creating a common set of metrics is key, and their 200 end-users are testimony to the value to companies such as Marks and Spencer.”
