With Carbon Heatmap, companies can identify the highest potential areas for GHG performance improvement and develop actionable carbon emissions reduction strategies.

EcoVadis said, “Carbon Heatmap is a cost-effective solution for companies that want to make progress on their sustainability efforts without committing significant resources upfront. The solution combines EcoVadis’ unique repository of GHG emissions data based on 14,000-plus reporting organizations across the world.

“It also pulls from robust public databases along with an organization’s specific spend and criticality data. The methodology is continuously updated based on the latest industry research, standards and literature review.”

The Carbon Heatmap also includes the ability to profile an unlimited number of suppliers, the mapping of overall emissions risk by country, industry, emissions source and more and also provides customised recommendations that allow organisations to request action towards decarbonisation and carbon emissions risk mitigation.

EcoVadis general solutions manager, carbon, Julia Salant said, “Given the urgency of the climate crisis, companies are seeking to reduce their carbon emissions and create a more sustainable business model that impacts not just their bottom line, but also benefits both the planet and society.
