The partnership between Sedex and Emitwise seeks to support businesses’ sustainability efforts by providing deeper insights and more efficient data services for supply chain sustainability, including on what is described as “notoriously difficult” Scope 3 emissions.

Emitwise supports businesses to measure, manage and report on their complete carbon footprint, including the complex yet crucial Scope 3 supply chain emissions.

Sedex’s strengths across its data platform and assessment tools lie in social topics such as working hours, labour management practices, and worker demographics at supplier work sites.

By working together, Sedex and Emitwise hope to enable brands, suppliers and intermediaries to access more of their supply chain sustainability data in one place to drive more informed, efficient decision-making and reporting.

Sedex and Emitwise will begin by referring each other’s services to customers, alongside working to develop their collaboration across data integration, insights and measurement. For example, they will investigate ways to bring Emitwise environmental data into the Sedex ecosystem for businesses to analyse within the context of social data on suppliers and individual work sites.

Sedex CEO Jon Hancock says: “Emitwise addresses a critical sustainability challenge by helping businesses to measure and manage their Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. Their services perfectly complement Sedex’s tools and data landscape, with our expertise across social areas. Our customers often ask us for more environmental data capabilities – this partnership will deliver that in an effective way that taps into existing, proven solutions. I’m delighted we’re partnering with Emitwise, and excited about our future work to harness both our strengths for our customers’ benefit.”

Mauro Cozzi, CEO and co-founder of Emitwise comments: “Sedex and Emitwise are highly aligned in our mission to empower companies with the data necessary to make decisions that benefit people, planet and profit. Sedex has established itself as a leader in supply chain social governance, and together with Emitwise’s financial-grade carbon accounting platform, we could soon be offering customers and their value chain a solution that accelerates impact across all three pillars of ESG.”

Last month Sedex announced a partnership with the Treedom agroforestry platform to help capture an estimated 31 tonnes of CO2 over 10 years through the planting of trees globally.
