Be the fastest to Net Zero

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.

Meet global regulatory 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.

Enable sales 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.

Fast & defendable reports means more time for analysis
