Measuring Carbon Footprint - A Full Circle Discussion Between Inventor, Upscaler and End-User

09 Nov 2022
Increasing Sustainability in Manufacturing Sectors

This panel discussion brings together ATOS partners and customers regarding an automated Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) solution. With BASF as partner and inventor, Atos as enabler and distributor and Trinseo as Customer taking action towards a Net-Zero future, a full-cycle discussion around the topic of carbon footprint measurement and calculation is provided. All three parties will be discussing a unique opportunity to innovate industry wide standards for PCF Calculation.

The PCF calculation tool (SCOTT) and methodology developed by BASF is based on LCA and calculates a cradle-to-gate PCF. Atos was selected as partner to develop and distribute a one of a kind software platform to make this tool and procedure available to the industry. The methodology is based on the ISO standards 14040:2006, 14044:2006 and ISO14067:2018.

Starting June 2022, Trinseo is working with Atos using a digital solution that calculates PCF for the chemical industry to gather key insights for enterprise-wide deployment of the solution in line with its existing SAP ERP and data landscape. After upscaling the tool across business units, Trinseo is expected to ultimately achieve the capability of providing automated PCF information in-house to its customers for all its products.
This panel discussion aims to exchange views, reflect the entire enablement process as well as deliver an outlook for future users in search of Net-Zero Solutions.
