In this video you’ll discover how can we find out the exact eco-footprint of two different burgers. Built on blockchain with integrated industrial sensors, ReCarbonX Systems automatically collects every processing, supply and manufacturing step along the way, to build an accurate and trustworthy picture of each individual burger’s entire eco-footprint.
So you can vote with your wallet to support the manufacturers who really are making a difference!
An increasing number of corporations have announced large-scale, ambitious sustainability plans in attempts to reduce their millions of metric tons of annual CO2 emissions.
But when it comes to carbon offset, there’s a Zone of Grey Fuzz surrounding the whole issue: Does the general public understand that any offsets must be additional? How can we know that offset programs are doing what they say they’re doing? What’s the actual impact?
In our series on complex manufacturing: an explanation of how ReCarbonX Systems can build an accurate, real-time picture of the eco-footprint of a glass bottle.
“Gretchenfrage, as a generic term, refers to a direct question that goes to the heart of a problem and is intended to reveal the intentions and the disposition of the person asked. It is usually uncomfortable for the person asked, because it is intended to persuade them to make a confession that they have not yet made.” —Wikipedia (translated from German)
“No matter what I buy, there’s some kind of impact on the planet … Who do I believe? How am I supposed to make the right choice?” Libby spoke to local consumers about the paper vs. plastic debate, and the RCX team came up with a vision for the new year.
In this video (1:06), we cover the cornerstones of circular economies and how ReCarbonX's blockchain, smart contracts and integrated industrial sensors work together as a comprehensive, trustworthy value chain tracking system to enable a circular economy. Once value...
Of all the sustainability areas that get the public’s hackles up, personal transportation is one of the biggest (as evidenced by the recent spate of flight-shaming). It’s an area we can make a difference on a day-to-day basis – by choosing public transport or our legs – but it’s also an easy target.
Currently, LCA is an expensive undertaking, both financially and in terms of time and resources, and it is undertaken by various different bodies – from governments and third party auditing companies to large corporations (studies in-house or outsourced).
The writing appears to be on the wall for the 4th Industrial Revolution: we can’t keep doing business the way we’ve been doing it for the past century. In the words of Johan Rockström (Stockholm Resilience Center), “We are hitting the ceiling of the biophysical capacity of planet earth to stay in its current, stable state.”
‘Sustainability reporting’ is a Thing these days, and forms a valuable part of company communication with customers, stakeholders and consumers.
