carbmee: A Trusted Carbon Management Solution Provider for Complex Supply Chains
In a recent discussion, Prof. Christian Heinrich, Co-Founder and Managing Director at carbmee, shared insights into the company's role in carbon management for complex supply chains.
Simplifying Carbon Management for Industries with Complex Supply Chains
carbmee serves as a solution for various industries, including automotive, manufacturing, chemical, pharmaceuticals, medtech, hi-tech, logistics, and FMCG. The company focuses on simplifying carbon management, helping businesses understand and reduce their carbon footprint, and complying with upcoming regulations like CBAM.
Dr. Christian Heinrich, Co-Founder since January 2021, explains that carbmee was founded with the goal of simplifying complex processes. Heinrich and his co-founder, Robin Spickers, deliberately joined forces, combining their knowledge in sustainability and supply chain. Together, they created carbmee, offering practical solutions for carbon accounting and reduction.
Understanding Scope 1, 2, and 3
The company categorizes emissions into three types. Scope 1 covers direct emissions a company makes, like running boilers and vehicles. Scope 2 includes indirect emissions, such as the energy a company buys. Scope 3 encompasses all the emissions a company is indirectly responsible for across its value chain.
carbmee's journey began with a focus on the complex Scope 3 emissions. Now, they streamline the process, helping businesses save time, resources, and money. Heinrich emphasizes the challenge of measuring scope 3, requiring a robust calculation engine and algorithm to automatically calculate footprints and provide recommendations for reductions. The platform simplifies carbon accounting and reduction, making it all happen in one place. This way, companies can be transparent about their carbon impact and engage with suppliers for better environmental practices.
