Major disruptions combined with increasing customer expectations have been the primary driver for the rise in popularity of real-time visibility solutions over the past several years. While many leading organizations today recognize that visibility is a requirement for efficiently moving goods throughout the global supply chain, their needs continue to evolve. 

Heightened pressure from investors and consumers, combined with new regulatory mandates has upgraded supply chain sustainability from a nice to have to a board level priority for many. In response to this growing focus on sustainability, many companies have begun making public commitments to reducing emissions by target dates in the near-term or mid-term future. 

Measuring and reducing carbon footprints, with a specific focus on Scope 3 – indirect emissions that occur within a company’s value chain – is required to achieve this. Analysis from Accenture has identified that 70% of Scope 3 emissions, or a total of 60% of a company’s emissions are supply chain related. In order to achieve – and prove – these improvements, companies will need access to high-quality emissions data.

Lenzing Group, Most recently, project44 teamed up with Lenzing Group, a leading provider of specialty fibers, chose to partner with project44 to enhance its ocean visibility offerings one step further to capture accurate emissions. The duo designed a solution that embodies the technology and predictive capabilities that project44 is known for, while moving beyond location and status tracking.
