What truly sets EIS™ apart is its versatility. With guidance from carbmee's experts we quickly identified the necessary data.

Once we transferred these data to carbmee (including transactional and supplier information) this holistic approach empowered us to have a first comprehensive view of our Scope 3 emissions. All this work was done in a matter of weeks, which otherwise would have taken us months of mundane work. EIS™ has been a game-changer!’

For more than 40 years, Steinbeis Papier GmbH has been walking the talk when it comes to sustainability. Their products are made from 100% recovered paper in one of Europe’s most modern paper mills, which has enabled them to achieve excellence in Scope 1 and 2 carbon reduction. Recently, they decided to take the next step toward net-zero by identifying hidden emissions in their supply chain.

The challenge

Integrated solution that bridges the gap between Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) and Supply Chain Emissions

Why EIS?

“At Steinbeis Papier, we want to manage our environmental impact with the same level of precision as we manage our business. The EIS™ will help us gain complete transparency into the carbon emissions of our products and everything that goes into them, at the highest level of granularity. From the massive amounts of secondary fibers down to the last drop of retention aid.”

Key Learnings from Steinbeis for other companies

“We used to calculate Scope 3 with external partners, which was costly and not optimized to reflect changes in our procurement decisions. With the EIS™, we will have full visibility of our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions in one place and can easily adjust the calculations as changes occur in the value chain, allowing us to make confident decisions about carbon reduction in the future.”
