Siemens and Sustamize collaborate on carbon emissions data

To provide access to the most up to date CO2e emission data for materials and energies, Siemens Digital Industries Software is collaborating with climate tech company Sustamize to enable companies to measure, optimise and manage CO2 emissions.

The new Teamcenter Carbon Footprint Calculator software, part of the Teamcenter product cost management solution from the Siemens Xcelerator platform, enables organisations to measure, simulate, reduce and track their product carbon footprint early in the development phase. This will empower different departments to measure, optimise and manage carbon footprints at each level of the product value chain.

“Today, it is thought that 80 percent of the environmental impact associated with a product can be avoided in the development and design phase,” said Eryn Devola, vice president of sustainability at Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Our collaboration with Sustamize will enable customers to understand the environmental impacts of their products and processes early in the product development based on comprehensive, up to date, data.

“By empowering our community to make fact-based decisions based on uniform data along the entire supply chain, we can assist them to avoid hazardous materials, use materials and energy efficiently, develop clean manufacturing procedures and help to accelerate the transition to net zero.”

The new Teamcenter Carbon Footprint Calculator software showing the carbon footprint for energy such carbon rates for gas worldwide, carbon rate for oil worldwide, carbon rate for electricity.

Through this collaboration, the wealth of data from Sustamize’s Product Footprint Engine, including a prepackaged CO2 emission factors library with frequently used material and energy factor set, will be accessible through the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio. This will support the calculation of the product carbon footprint and scope 3 emissions (for purchased parts and external services) with the capability to add additional category data sets based on demand.

Sustamize’s technology enables automated product carbon footprint management with one of the world’s largest CO2e database and intelligent algorithms, so the Product Footprint Engine is based on scientifically researched data enriched with more than 20 years of industry know-how and validated according to ISO 14048 by DEKRA.

“Empowering users across manufacturing focused organisations to understand the CO2e impacts and drivers in their own products and supply chains, while working with a sophisticated tool that is already familiar and user-friendly, is a game changer in overcoming hurdles related to CO2e management,” said Viola Hasani, co-founder and customer success lead at Sustamize.
