Sedex and Emitwise sign partnership to improve supply chain sustainability data
We’ve signed a partnership with carbon management platform Emitwise to help address businesses’ supply chain data challenges.
This partnership seeks to support businesses’ sustainability efforts by providing deeper insights and more efficient data services for supply chain sustainability, including on notoriously difficult Scope 3 emissions.
As Sedex members and others face increasing pressure to manage their environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices and impacts, data on supply chain activities is both essential yet challenging to collate. Sedex and Emitwise will look to combine our respective strengths across social and environmental data and assessment to help businesses analyse, act and report on key sustainability areas more easily.
Emitwise supports businesses to measure, manage and report on their complete carbon footprint, including the complex yet crucial Scope 3 supply chain emissions. Their services complement Sedex’s strengths in social topics across our data platform and assessment tools, such as working hours, labour management practices, and worker demographics at supplier sites.
By working together, we hope to enable brands, suppliers and intermediaries to access more of their supply chain sustainability data in one place to drive more informed, efficient decision-making and reporting.
We’ll begin by referring each other’s services to our customers, alongside developing our collaboration across data integration, insights and measurement. For example, we’ll investigate ways to bring Emitwise’s environmental data into the Sedex ecosystem, for members to analyse within the context of social data on suppliers and individual work sites.
We’ll explore the opportunities to combine our supply chain data capabilities, to empower our customers’ wider sustainability goals.
