In response to the severe natural disasters caused by climate change, energy conservation and carbon reduction have become more than just environmental concepts on paper or a marketing strategy to enhance brand image. More and more internationally renowned companies are demanding strict compliance with low-carbon emission policies in the production process of their goods. In the near future, they aim to achieve carbon neutrality, or even zero carbon emissions. When the carbon footprint and carbon reduction performance of the supply chain are included in the brand’s procurement indicators, how can suppliers control carbon emissions in their production processes? How can they track the carbon emissions of their products at each stage? How can they fully disclose the carbon footprint of their products?
These have become challenges for many suppliers.
As industry leaders such as Apple, TSMC, Nike, Google, Walmart, IKEA, and Mercedes-Benz make commitments to carbon neutrality or even zero carbon emissions, carbon management has become a critical competitive advantage and even a survival indicator for suppliers. Through the introduction of RFID technology, product data can be traced and managed from production to shipping to sales points, allowing for the calculation of carbon emissions and identification of areas for improvement. By using RFID technology to digitize the carbon emissions of products at each stage and visualize the tracking process, suppliers can develop relevant improvement policies and showcase their carbon reduction achievements.
