Driving Change with carbmee EIS™
Redefining Success in the Automotive Industry
With carbmee EIS™, this company experienced a significant leap in carbon transparency. By leveraging advanced automation technology, they were able to calculate their Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) of several key components in recording timing of just 11 days including data harmonization. The carbmee EIS™ automation technology enables them to save weeks or months worth of time on calculations and focus their attention on initiatives that will actively reduce their carbon footprint and achieve their sustainability goals.
Traditionally, many companies analyze their Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) separately from their Supply Chain Emissions. However, this premium automotive company took a different approach, recognizing the interdependence between both. By leveraging carbmee EIS™’ approach of calculating integrated Product and Supply Chain Emissions with transactional data, they gained a holistic view of their carbon performance and were able to identify hotspot emissions across their supply chain from a material and supplier perspective. Armed with this knowledge, they could develop targeted strategies for R&D internally and collaborate with suppliers. With this understanding, the company now has the means to develop a high-focused collaboration strategy with these suppliers to address the emission reduction challenges head-on.
Unlocking Cost Reduction and Tax Savings through Emissions Reduction Initiatives
As the automotive industry prepares for the upcoming implementation of the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) by the end of January 2024, identifying affected suppliers with high emissions becomes increasingly critical. This car manufacturer is heavily reliant on imported aluminum and steel from outside Europe and faces potential financial implications with upcoming carbon taxes. By leveraging carbmee EIS™, they unlocked an opportunity for bottom line growth. By identifying suppliers with the highest emissions associated with these materials, the company now has three years to collaboratively focus on emission reduction efforts. Such proactive measures have the potential to result in significant cost savings, potentially saving millions of euros per year in carbon taxes.
