In the last decade, the number of companies worldwide disclosing their sustainability practices has increased significantly, driven not only by new laws and regulations (e.g., upcoming EU CSRD) but also by the growing awareness of financial decision makers that environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects have a serious impact on financial performance and corporate value generation. Approaches and reporting methodologies are complex and dynamic, requiring high-level understanding of corporate activities and relations backed up with robust sustainability strategies, impact analyses and risk management processes. With sustainability reporting now being widely adopted, companies that are not yet working on their disclosures risk being left behind global standards and initiatives.
Product Stewardship (PS) is the act of taking responsibility for manufactured products and reduction of the environmental, health and safety impacts of these products. Only with a functioning product stewardship program can chemical suppliers guarantee legal compliance of manufactured chemicals and meet the increasingly stringent demands of consumers, brands and manufacturers with regard to product safety and sustainability. Closing gap in product stewardship builds trust with your customers and opens the door for high level certifications like bluesign®.
Product Carbon Footprint calculation (PCF) calculation for chemical products, textile materials and trims
How much greenhouse gas emissions are associated with your product along its life cycle? This question has become increasingly important over the past years and a Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) can help to give answers. A product footprint measures the environmental impact of your product from gate-to-gate and beyond. It’s based on life cycle assessment methodology. Calculating a product footprint will help you to understand the main factors behind the environmental footprint of your product. It can be used to create supplier commitment and increase the credibility of your product’s environmental performance from a stakeholder perspective.
