Whether you are a manufacturer or a retailer, your consumer base is now increasingly demanding products that are genuinely environmentally friendly and not only "greenwash". Today, savvy consumers want access to specific environmental data, not just pictures of green meadows and blue skies!
As consumers invest more time researching and evaluating products, environmental information becomes an essential element of the customer's journey.

As a business, you are probably already investing a lot of time, money, and resources to make your products sustainable. Furthermore, you also need official certificates such as the Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) or the Ecolabel stamp to prove their high environmental standard.
When you are already following eco-friendly best practices to lower your environmental impact, you should also plan to make your environmental data available. It will lead to greater transparency, brand loyalty, higher sales, and of course, fewer returns and superior customer experiences.

We can retrieve eco-data directly from their source through intelligent automation and strategic partnerships, allowing you to get as comprehensive a picture of environmental footprints as possible.
All product data is searchable through adjustable filters and values, empowering users to evaluate environmental parameters, such as Global Warming Potential (GWP) - kgCO2e, water consumption - m3, and waste production - kg, independently.*
This solution is just a tiny part of our eco-tool project, so stay tuned for exciting future developments!
As you might already know, we are also strongly committed to several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We are working on using the potential of product data to create a better future through:
- innovation and infrastructure (sustainability goal 9)
- influence sustainable cities and communities (sustainability goal 11)
- responsible consumption, and production (sustainability goal 12)
- take action about climate change (sustainability goal 13)
- collaboration to achieve the goals (sustainability goal 17).
So, what do you think? Is environmental product data that valuable? Or do you think that product data is just "facts" about a product and nothing more?
We'd love to hear your thoughts!
