IFU Hamburg’s Software accredited by Supply Chain Carbon Council


 The Supply Chain Carbon Council bestows its product lifecycle analysis software Accreditation to IFU Hamburg for its Tool “Umberto for LCA"

Dublin Ireland 01/11/2011. IFU Hamburg, a leader in Lifecycle Analysis has received Accreditation from the Supply Chain Carbon Council for their Lifecycle Analysis (LCA) solution Umberto

Established in 2007, The Supply Chain Carbon Council works in partnership with global innovators from the technology and strategic advice sectors to tackle the issues surrounding carbon emissions management and reduction.

“If You Can Measure It You Can Manage It.” This is the key to a Sustainable Supply Chain. Industry needs to apply more, not less Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to the problem of Emissions Management. To realise its full business and environmental value, Product Level Carbon Footprinting will need to leverage ICT that enables efficient dynamic emissions monitoring and decisions support.

The ability of Lifecycle Analysis to bring a high level of visibility to a product’s emissions output at all stages in its design and manufacture is unrivalled and should be harnessed on a global scale. “To have a clear picture of a products’ carbon emissions output at all stages in its design and manufacture is invaluable and will allow organisations to identify where reductions can be achieved and ultimately provide this information to the end user” comments John Connors CEO Supply Chain Carbon Council.

“Our customers value the combination of powerful software solutions and dedicated services. By offering training and project support we are also a reliable partner for all methodological questions related to LCA.”, says Martina Prox, Head of Marketing & Sales at IFU Hamburg. Both consultants and companies rely on Umberto for LCA because of its easy handling while simultaneously enabling the assessment of environmental impacts of complex products and supply chains. Mrs. Prox adds: “Among our clients are the most sustainable companies of the world, who have recognized the direct link between sustainability and competitive advantages. And both aspects are well supported by Umberto.”
