Sustainability-conscious companies should measure the environmental footprint of their products and services.
Global warming and climate change are clearly some of the most pressing problems the world faces today. As sustainability becomes an imperative for businesses today, many organizations are looking to decarbonize their supply chains, reduce their carbon footprint, and build circular business models. This requires them to:
Measure the environmental footprint of their products and services.
Assess the impact from materials, transportation, energy consumption, and processes to set environmental KPIs.
Locate major environmental impact 'hot spots’ across a product value chain to identify intervention opportunities.
While product life cycle assessment (LCA) can help, the prevalent methods only furnish a static view of the impact on the environment with no real-time visibility, limiting the ability to identify and mitigate risks. In addition, these methods are non-scalable, costly, and time-consuming, which can discourage repeated LCA across product lines and manufacturing facilities.
Get closer to your sustainability goals with TCS Product Life Cycle Profiler
TCS Product Life Cycle Profiler is a scalable, end-to-end LCA solution based on open-source technologies and a cloud-agnostic architecture. It gathers data submitted via a primary data uploader and transforms it into actionable insights you can use to meet your sustainability goals.
Computes the environmental footprint of products originating from a specific facility.
Offers a comprehensive view of the impact from materials, transportation, suppliers, energy consumption, and processes.
Displays environmental impact hot spots in a dashboard, giving decision-makers visibility into intervention opportunities
Provides access to secondary data sources and computes environmental impact across nearly 20 categories (from global warming potential and human toxicity to water used and ozone depletion).
Helps analyze data with activity-based, footprinting algorithms
Integrates with standard identity access management systems to improve security and access management
Identify green opportunities across the value chain through end-to-end life cycle assessment
The TCS Product Life Cycle Profiler offers enterprises the following benefits:
