ShibataFenderTeam introduces tool for transparent carbon footprint assessment

ShibataFenderTeam Group (SFT) teamed up with the independent consultancy company Ramboll in order to develop an exclusive assessment tool that provides Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions per individual order.

More specifically, the new tool is based on ISO 14037:2018 and the analysis provided is built upon three pillars: sourcing, manufacturing and distribution (cradle-to-gate) of the ordered product.

The resulting emission factor considers the product components, the energy consumption and transport of the raw material, delivering a clear feedback to clients that are now aware of the extent of CO2 emissions associated with their order, and more importantly, how they might reduce those emissions.

According to ShibataFenderTeam, "SFT offers a “green solution” to their established products, with various alternative components (such as bluemint® steel by Thyssenkrupp, post-industry plastics and recycled carbon black) which offer the same high quality but ensure less GHG emissions; and our clients can immediately see their CO2 savings."

"Transparency and accountability are vital," noted Jan-Christoph Schoeler, board member at SFT, adding that "When a customer places an order with us, we believe they have a right to know the environmental cost associated with that order, and how they might reduce it."

Additionally, the SFT sustainable approach focuses on three strategic priorities: carbon reduction initiatives, corporate responsibility, and people.
