Supply Chain Environmental Analysis and Optimization
CleanMetrics can analyze and help improve the environmental impacts of your
supply chain. While energy supplies are tightening and energy costs are
increasing on one hand, energy-related greenhouse gas emissions are adding
further risk to global business. It is an ideal time to consider the energy
consumed and emissions generated by your supply chain.
We can analyze
your supply chain end-to-end, or just a portion of it that is under your
control. Using our proprietary software tools,
we can quantify the baseline environmental performance of your supply chain,
identify areas where performance could be improved, and then run a range of
"what-if" scenarios to evaluate potential optimizations. Our goals are to help
you squeeze out waste and inefficiencies, save money, and take carbon out of
supply chains .
We can evaluate a number of supply-chain performance metrics, such as:
Energy used to operate the supply chain - including fossil and non-fossil
Greenhouse gas emissions generated by the supply chain - including carbon
dioxide and other relevant greenhouse gases
Freight transport distances
Energy/emissions impacts of packaging materials used in the supply chain
Waste products generated by the supply chain
Cost of operating the supply chain
Our analysis includes detailed evaluation of transportation and logistics. We
take into account a range of details such as specific transport routes,
transport modes, utilization and backhaul, manufacturing and storage locations,
and temperature control in transport/storage.
If you are a retailer (online and/or with physical stores), we can analyze the
environmental performance of both your inbound and outbound logistics. For
example, we can evaluate the emissions generated from product delivery to your
customers for both online and in-store purchases. We can analyze and compare
scenarios such as shipment from a regional warehouse versus home delivery from a
local store, taking into account a range of factors including transportation and
If you are a manufacturer or distributor, we can map the flow of your products in
detail, starting from all your suppliers and ending at the retail outlets that
receive your products. Our environmental performance analysis will take into
account your actual product distribution network and vehicles used. In addition
to identifying inefficiencies and optimizing environmental performance, we can
also compute useful metrics such as carbon
footprints and "food miles" for the products that you distribute.
Custom Software Tools
In addition to analysis services, we also provide
custom software tools, including easy-to-use web-based tools coupled with
custom databases, that can compute selected supply-chain environmental
performance metrics for you on an ongoing basis.
