SUPPLY CHAIN ANALYSIS

The future of successful business lies in the supply chain

Climate change, resource scarcity, human rights violations – in times of complex global value chains, the environmental and social hot spots will be found in the supply chain, often far away from corporate headquarters. Awareness of resource risks as well as regulatory and reputational risks in the supply chain is of high relevance for corporate strategy. Due to insufficient information, however, companies are facing major challenges when trying to gain the necessary insights fast, efficiently and reliably.

Using the toolbox estell we identify the resource consumption, environmental impacts and social hot spots of your company as well as your entire supply chain thoroughly. We determine all environmental and social effects, which can be quantified based on international reliable statistics.

We help you succeed in a comprehensive and efficient supply chain analysis:

Z

Scientifically recognized

Our analysis tool is based on the recognized economic model of multiregional input-output analysis as well as quality-assured data of international environment, resource, and social statistics.

Z

Time and cost efficient

Our analysis tool provides fact-based findings instantly, as it only requires readily available information from financial controlling of your company

Z

Strategically revealing

Environmental and social impacts can be identified by countries and economic sectors, as well as product groups, business units or stages within the supply chain. Thus the analysis provides revealing insights on which aspects of sustainability are particularly relevant for your company and should get the highest priority.

Z

Consistent & enabling comparison and effect evaluation

We are able to relate individual environmental categories (greenhouse gas emissions, air pollutants, water consumption, land use) and compare them in a useful manner. Moreover, environmental effects can be set in ratio to financial figures. To identify social hotspots we use the standardized measure of social risk hours.
