As companies set ambitious targets to address their impact on nature, they face significant supply chain management data challenges. Environmental data for agricultural production systems can be incomplete, inconsistent or too generic to meaningfully identify hot spots and evaluate interventions.
geoFootprint eases the burden of manually collecting and analyzing sustainability metrics by displaying the best sources of publicly-available environmental and crop production data on an intuitive and interactive online world map, delivering granular visibility — down to 10×10 km! — that yields sharper insights for strategic decision-making.
“Nestlé supports the development of the geoFootprint database and the development of robust life cycle inventories for agricultural products. Data with high value chain specificity, quality, and spatial and temporal resolution enables the assessment of the environmental performance of our products and corporate climate change commitments.”
Gerhard Niederreiter, Head of Nestlé Institute of Packaging Sciences, Nestlé Research
