Future-proof your business for the green economy
The climate emergency is set to fundamentally transform the global commodities market. Producers in the highest-emitting industries (oil and gas, metals and mining, minerals, agriculture) face significant risks, and potential opportunities — including regulation, reputation, penalties, and growing demand for low-carbon products.
CarbonChain prepares you to withstand the coming climate shock.
Our carbon accounting platform measures your entire carbon footprint across your direct operations and supply chains — upstream and downstream — to give you unrivalled insight into how carbon emissions, risks, and opportunities will affect your business and customers.
Accurate, asset-level insights
Quantify and break down your entire carbon footprint. Get comprehensive, asset-level emissions data in near real-time for your direct operations, customers, and supply chains. Identify risks with precision, benchmark your performance, and find opportunities for tangible emissions reductions to offer low-carbon products.
Protect your reputation
Give your stakeholders accurate, impartial and auditable emissions reports that they can trust. Demonstrate transparency and awareness of your full climate impacts and risks, and set quantified targets while reporting progress against them.
Manage risks and regulations
Track and tackle emissions over time with our AI-powered, automated platform. Foresee risks, prepare for legislation, and measure the impact of carbon pricing, green sourcing strategies, and offsets. We reduce the burden of data collection, analysis, and reporting, so you can fulfil requirements and seize opportunities.
Why take action?
Prepare for a rapidly changing market
The transition to a net-zero economy is underway. As the biggest emitters on the planet, the extractive industries (metals and mining, oil and gas) and agriculture sectors face the highest risks of disruption — while human societies continue to depend on these resources.
With increasing regulation, media scrutiny, green financing, and demand for low-carbon products, climate risk in one area of the value chain has a knock-on effect throughout. Commodity producers need to understand the business impacts of their direct — and indirect — emissions.
Value chain pressure
Banks are increasing the cost of capital for carbon-intensive business. Investors are setting out oil and gas net-zero transition standards and 70% of financial institutions assess their portfolios for climate-related risks. Buyers are scrutinizing environmental risks in their supply chains, setting Scope 3 targets, and demanding action from suppliers. Commodity producers need to act fast to stay competitive.
Carbon pricing and regulation
Producers face major risks from the spread of carbon regulation, the rising cost of carbon, and potential suspension of extraction activities — from a hike in the cost of business-as-usual, to the risk of stranded assets.
Reporting and reputation
Buyers, banks, policymakers, and civil society are demanding transparency and decarbonization from the commodity industries. Increasing media scrutiny brings major reputational risks, and more legislation is on the horizon, such as G7-backed mandatory disclosure.
By tracking your upstream and downstream emissions with precision, CarbonChain helps you tame the complexity of ESG regulation and mitigate risks early.
Commodity producers will need to prepare for the shocks of a rapidly changing market. But by raising your ambition even higher, the transition to net-zero can go further, faster — with business benefits for first movers:
Aim for climate leadership by working with customers and suppliers to build greener commodity supply chains. Join the companies reaping the benefits of voluntary disclosure, and help define industry science-based target-setting (for oil and gas and agriculture). With accurate data, use offsets credibly under increased scrutiny.
Access green finance from banks and institutional investors by managing and reporting your carbon risk. Seize the financial opportunities of responding to the increasing demand for low-carbon products.
By quantifying and tackling your supply chain footprint, you’re future-proofing your business.
CarbonChain lets you automate your supply chain emissions tracking, with unrivaled accuracy and asset-level, time-sensitive insights.
