Venator to measure the carbon footprint of its products
According to Venator, the strategic project will enable the business to deliver data on the carbon footprint of its products to its customers and accelerate its sustainability ambitions. Atos will help Venator gather key insights from its existing data that will enable enterprise-wide deployment of a specialist digital product carbon footprint (PCF) tool originally developed by BASF.
“Central to our business”
Rob Portsmouth, Senior Vice President, Sustainability at Venator, said: “We’re acutely aware that what we do today will impact the world tomorrow. Working in a sustainable way is central to our business. We’re proud of our progress but we know we can go further. Working with Atos to automate the carbon footprint calculation of our products is a big step forward. It will help Venator achieve our ambitions by identifying improvements needed to make our business and our product portfolio even more sustainable. Providing product carbon footprint data will also help our customers make more informed choices.”
