Pilot project to demonstrate the scalability of PCF data exchange
Together for Sustainability (TfS) and Siemens recently announced a partnership on decarbonization to advance the overall sustainability of the chemical industry.
TfS is a global initiative to promote sustainability in the chemical industry’s supply chain, consisting of 47 international companies, including some of the largest chemical groups.
Siemens, a leading technology company and supplier of automation and industrial software, will leverage the power of its Sigreen solution, a tool to track and manage product carbon footprint (PCF) and part of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, a press communique indicated.
In a pilot project, the two partners are combining their expertise and aim to demonstrate the scalability of PCF data exchange across an entire industry, which is a decisive step for decarbonizing the sector.
The Sigreen solution will be piloted and provide learnings for the exchange of PCF data in the chemical industry. It can then be deployed across the TfS members, contributing to further improve their expertise as pioneers in the PCF field.
“The partnership with TfS is a major step for the global chemical industry. We’re helping an entire sector become more sustainable! This is a blueprint for other industries,” affirmed Roland Busch, President and CEO of Siemens AG.
“Sigreen allows companies exchange emissions data from their supply chain securely and confidently. With this information, they can make better decisions to reduce their carbon footprint,” he added.
Data sharing solutions
“Sigreen will equip us with the solution for embedding our Product Carbon Footprint Guideline in operations at scale. TfS members, their suppliers and customers are looking forward to piloting the data sharing solution offered by Sigreen,” commented Bertrand Conquéret, President, Together for Sustainability.
Sigreen enables the secure and trustworthy exchange of PCF data throughout the supply chain. This information can then be combined with the data from a company’s own value creation processes to determine carbon footprints and enables companies to take targeted reduction measures with a quantifiable effect.
