Interview with Siemens
Find out more about the products and solutions of our exhibitors!21 Feb 2023
1) What is the name of your product?
2) What are the possible applications of your product?
The most urgent task for achieving the climate targets is to significantly reduce CO2 emissions. As the source of around one third of these global emissions, industry bears a major responsibility in this regard. To meet this responsibility, companies need reliable and verifiable data on materials, components and processes in order to quantify the CO2 values for each of their products. SiGREEN provides this necessary basis for targeted emissions management and, as part of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, offers a simple, open and interoperable approach to decarbonizing products. Data-driven, scalable and, above all, secure.
3) What is the product’s main benefit for the customer?
Our Software as a Service solution provides companies with the basis to not only measure emissions, but to actively shape them and thus effectively achieve their emission reduction targets at product level. To this end, SiGREEN works with all relevant PCF standards and enables our customers to receive standard-compliant data in a structured way across the entire supply chain, while all partners retain full control over their data. Thus, the efficiency of the query and accuracy of the calculation of a PCF is significantly increased.
4) How can your product contribute to industrial transformation?
Decarbonization as part of industrial transformation starts with data.
Precise data is a key prerequisite for effectively achieving the emission targets in the value chain. With SiGREEN, Siemens has successfully developed an application for the efficient acquisition of real data collected where emissions are actually produced, i.e. in the corresponding steps along the supply chain. To calculate the carbon footprint, SiGreen makes use of real data rather than industrial average values. Product Carbon Footprints thus become a measurement and control instrument – and can be actively reduced by applying targeted improvement measures.
5) Are there any other important points that you can think of?
The supply chain accounts for a major proportion of product-related emissions. To measure and reduce this Product Carbon Footprint (PCF), cooperation across frequently complex, cross-industry supply chains is a must. With this in mind, Siemens has initiated the Estainium network for the exchange of Product Carbon Footprints among manufacturers, suppliers, customers, and partners.
