In the last few decades we’ve seen NGO’s, roundtables and industry initiatives all developing sustainability standards. We’ve also seen that consumers are ever more interested in the origin of the products they buy, wanting assurance that products are produced fairly and sustainably for everybody involved in their making. But printing a logo on a package is not enough anymore. Brands, retailers and standards want to be able to show the real impact of their efforts – what does a logo mean in real terms, and how did it positively impact those far upstream the supply chain such as farmers or factory workers?
Technology helps standards create impact
ChainPoint has been working together with standards organizations for years now. With our software it’s not only possible to make sure you capture supply chain data reliably and efficiently, but you can also report on this data using real-time information with beautiful graphs, charts and infographics – and you can share this information with other key stakeholders, such as brands. This way, sustainability standards become more than a logo on a package.
