11.00 - 11.15am Industry 4.0 Enabling End-to-End Manufacturing Supply Chain Sustainability Transparency

Lack of data transparency and visibility is one of the biggest hinderances in quantifying the true environmental impact of manufacturing. From raw materials to the finished goods on a store shelf, the supply chain is expansive and complex to map and measure. Arcstone and the Advanced Remanufacturing & Technology Centre (ARTC) have teamed up to tackle this problem by leveraging Industry 4.0 toolsets and techniques to develop an extensive mapping from harvesting/production/logistics/etc. operations to truly measure and calculate a normalized carbon impact on the environment.
