A chain footprint provides insight into the impact of the supply chain that runs through your organization, from raw material extraction to waste processing. With this you know more about the role of your organization in this chain: where is the greatest impact and do you have the influence to reduce this impact? It is therefore not only about the activities of the organization itself, but also those of suppliers and consumers, so emphatically outside the company gates. Which materials are purchased and how are they produced? What do users do with a product they’ve sold from your organization?
Calculating a chain footprint can quickly become complex, so databases and key figures are used to keep the (initial) calculations clear. In a next step, you can zoom in on a product chain, material or other aspect.
