Scalable solutions for assessing the sustainability of complex products and product portfolios
Today, sustainability is a key to economic success, not only for large corporations but also increasingly for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The demand for sustainability as a product attribute is growing in both the B2C and B2B sectors. Customers and investors alike want proof in the form of environmental product declarations, sustainability reports or sustainability certificates. In addition, national and international regulations are becoming ever stricter, e.g. under the EU Taxonomy and the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). As a result, sustainability management requirements at product and company level are also on the rise. The efficient and flexible ability to analyze complex products and extensive product portfolios is becoming a crucial prerequisite.
The area of "Data-Science enhanced Product Stewardship" combines expertise from the fields of sustainability assessment and life cycle assessment (LCA) with digitization know-how in order to develop practical solutions for large-scale sustainability analyses in industrial companies.
