From June 2022 until the end of this year, Trinseo works with Atos using this digital solution that calculates product carbon footprints (PCF) for the chemical industry to gather key insights for enterprise-wide deployment of the solution in line with its existing SAP ERP and data landscape. After scaling up the tool across business units, Trinseo is expected to ultimately achieve the capability of providing automated PCF information in-house to its customers for all its products.

The PCF calculation tool (SCOTT) and methodology developed by BASF is based on Life Cycle Assessment methodology and calculates cradle-to-gate PCF. Atos was selected as a partner to develop and distribute a software platform to make this tool and methodology available to the industry. The methodology is based on ISO14067:2018 for the carbon footprint of products, which builds on the principles and requirements of the ISO standards 14040:2006 and 14044:2006.

“While Trinseo has been reporting our corporate carbon footprint for many years, it is still a manual and extremely labor-intensive process to do the same on a per-product level,” said Dr. Julien Renvoise, Trinseo’s Sustainability Business Development Leader. “Starting with a couple of our flagship products, we will explore how to automate this with the help of Atos and their PCF platform.”

“Our assessment has shown that Trinseo is already in a good position for PCF automation based on their available data and SAP processes,” said Stefan Unterhuber, Senior Director of Net Zero Transformation at Atos. “However, it has also shown areas where we expect gaps and room for improvements. Starting with this pilot project, our phased approach will allow us to gradually close gaps in their primary data, improve secondary data quality, and ultimately provide Trinseo with accurate and transparent PCF data per individual product that is fully automated.”

Both companies see this project as an important contribution toward a net-zero economy and an excellent example of how digital technology can be leveraged to monitor and manage greenhouse gas emissions.
