By delivering Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions data via the Data Marketplace for SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, Connect Earth enables customers to easily access the environmental data of thousands of companies globally
LONDON, United Kingdom — January 27, 2023 — Connect Earth today announced that its Connect Hub dataset with Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions data on thousands of companies is now available on the Data Marketplace for SAP Data Warehouse Cloud. The Data Marketplace for SAP Data Warehouse Cloud lets customers and partners connect to data providers across industries and lines of business to help gain insights for better decision making based on fast and easy access to internal and external data.
“Carbon emissions are the primary driver of global warming, yet it is not possible to easily access different businesses’ benchmarks and targets for reductions,” said Alexander Lempka, Co-Founder and CEO of Connect Earth. “Connect Hub was developed to democratise access to this information and provide a trusted gateway to what many perceive to be a data jungle. Through our dataset and API, we empower businesses of all sizes to access corporate emissions data on their suppliers, competitors, and potential business partners. This data can be used for supply chain analysis, supplier benchmarking and competitor analysis.”
Access to Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions data empowers:
- CFOs to identify the highest emitting participants in their supply chain and find ways to reduce the company’s carbon footprint
- Procurement directors to compare existing suppliers against their competitors and identify new business partners with lower environmental impact
- Executives to plan the emissions reduction strategy and compare their carbon footprint with competitors.
Many businesses are pursuing the above use cases, but they must collect this data from suppliers directly. This is time-consuming and often unnecessary because a lot of this data has already been published. Using Connect Hub’s dataset saves businesses time and effort.
