Makersite for sustainability experts
LCAs at the push of a button
Getting an LCA for one product is a lot of manual work, time, and money if you outsourced it to an agency. Learn how Makersite delivers you fully automated LCAs at scale – and more.
“Now (with Makersite) we can map the carbon footprint of our packaging and ingredients to every SKU – previously our emissions profile was nowhere near this granular. We also have the ability to model the emissions impact of decisions we could take before we actually take them, which has helped speed up our decision-making and will prove to be extremely valuable as we find new ways to reduce GHG emissions whilst Pukka grows.”
Sustainability Manager, Pukka Herbs
Why is Makersite the key ingredient to your sustainability strategy?
Get automated full Scope 1,2 and 3 reports
Get a full report of all Scope 1, 2, and 3 emission categories, including transparent material flows on a per-product basis and supplier-specific impact data across multiple criteria.
Get automated LCAs
Makersite’s artificial Intelligence generates PEF and ISO-grade LCAs at scale. It can report across all LCA and circularity criteria in the cloud at SKU level and gives you access to over 20 LCA databases.
See into the deep tiers of your supply chains
Uncover the deep tiers of your supply chain with Makersite’s 140+ procurement and PLM data sources from leading providers such as Ecoinvent, IDEA, and others.
Know your carbon impacts – from the product’s cradle to grave
Makersite AI creates digital twins of your complex supply chains. It is the world’s only AI-powered technology to quantify product and supply chain impacts from spend.
Stop losing time to manual work
Use your systems, including ERP, PLM, etc., to construct detailed, specific supply chains. With zero manual data entry and 100% automation, you’re focusing on action, not preparation.
Make important decisions easily
With Makersite, you can analyze your products and supply chains in detail, including full LCAs with 50+ criteria, from CAD or PLM-generated BOMs and share viewpoints with different stakeholders.
Sustainability experts use Makersite for this:
Achieving ambitious Net Zero targets
Approximately 90% of countries are covered by some Net Zero target, as are hundreds of the largest publicly traded companies. But current LCA approaches are not scalable, and category spend-based approaches are too poor to identify or track improvements over the Net Zero journey. So, how do you get a Net Zero strategy to work? With Makersite, you get an operating system for the transition to Net Zero. You can find drivers of environmental impact in your product and supply chains, enable ecodesign and create all the reports you need around sustainability, standards-conformant, of course. What used to take months now takes minutes with Makersite.
Meeting reporting requirements
More and more rigorous emission regulations are coming into place all over the world. It is only a question of time until Scope 3 reporting, for example, will be mandatory for all companies. Many of these obligations, especially around emissions that occur upstream and downstream, for many companies are challenging to report on and even harder to improve. With Makersite you can respond to growing regulations and penalties on product declarations, meet reporting requirements quickly through automation and move 100x faster using AI-supported tools – all while reducing the need to staff LCA-expertise.
Enabling core teams
While up to 90% of ecological impacts stem from the supply chain of products, over 92% of companies do not know about them. Your engineering and procurement teams are the ones who can enable sustainable change in your supply chains. So, how can you empower these two engines to help you decarbonize your supply chain? With Makersite, engineering and procurement teams gain insights into the deep tiers of the supply chain and do not need to rely on experts to enable ecodesign and sustainable procurement. By integrating sustainable sourcing, you can reduce the climate impact of spend by up to 70%, while the design teams can influence up to 80% of the ecological impact of a product when given the right information at hand in the design phase.
A view into the Makersite software
Let digital twins simulate your product life cycle
Use activity-based modeling to simulate any product or service’s entire life cycle. Makersite’s recommendation engine will help you fill gaps and complete your models correctly and quickly. Use and build your ISO 14044 LCA on world-class ILCD conformant data from leading providers such as Ecoinvent, IDEA, and others.
Automatically generate data-driven suggestions to improve your products and supply chains across multiple criteria. Identify potential issues and evaluate design alternatives quickly. Instantly assess how your product changes affect compliance, sustainability, costs, etc., with inbuilt tools, and collaborate quickly to resolve issues before they become problems.
Create standard-conformant reports
Export visualizations and data for use in your reports, internal systems, offline calculations, or presentations. Makersite supports various graphic formats and Excel or CSV. Integrate reports directly into your BI tool of choice, e.g., Microsoft BI, Tableau, etc., share interactive LCA data with your customers and stakeholders directly from Makersite, or publish limited results, e.g., footprints for the public.
