Trace Your Steps to Sustainability:  The Impact of Supply Chain Traceability on Achieving Environmental Goals

Businesses today face immense pressure to ensure the sustainability of their products and supply chains. In meeting this challenge, traceability comes with an advantage - the power to track the origin, movement, and destination of products. 

By collecting information on the source of raw materials, where they have travelled through, and where the final products are being made, businesses are better equipped to understand and address the environmental and social impact of their supply chains. This could involve, for example, minimising carbon footprint, preventing deforestation, and ensuring farmers and field workers are being paid fairly. Traceability could prove to be a key driver in helping businesses identify where changes to their supply chains need to be made in order to reduce their negative impact on the environment.

Moreover, traceability is a useful tool for businesses in identifying and sidestepping products that have been linked to deforestation. With the new EU deforestation regulation coming into play, traceability can help businesses comply by enabling them to track their products right to the precise geographical locations from where they have been sourced from and thus, ensure they are not connected to deforestation.

We truly believe traceability is a game changer that empowers businesses to take action by giving real live insights into their supply chains.
