In typical business functions like marketing or finance, most companies understand
the landscape drawn from historical knowledge and the organization’s collective
experience. The picture is different for sustainability. As ESG reporting has become
more commonplace and increasingly mandated by regulation, organizations
create dedicated teams for sustainability. In a world of climate change and
environmental degradation, businesses are under growing pressure to incorporate
sustainability across all their activities, from manufacturing to employee travel, with
little or no prior experience to pave a clear path forward. This leaves companies and
their sustainability teams to monitor a wide spectrum of ESG parameters in
compliance with rapidly evolving regulations and stakeholder expectations, all while
acting in a way that will drive impactful change.
The expectations are higher for big companies operating across borders. These
organizations have a larger footprint and considerably greater influence over their
business partners. Key stakeholders, such as investors and customers, now expect
these big conglomerates to use this influence to hardwire sustainability practices
within their operations and supply chain.
The supply chain, which spans
the entire business from raw
material extraction to the
hands of the final consumer,
quite understandably falls
under scrutiny as a part of this
growing focus on sustainability,
especially given the complex,
sprawling nature of global
supply chains today.
Large companies are driven
by a combination of
stakeholder pressure and
internally motivated zeal, on a
mission to propagate
environmentally and socially
responsible practices
throughout their supply chain.
The key to succeeding with any sustainable supply chain journey boils down to data and visibility.
Businesses need the ability to record important data across their supply chain network and provide
real-time visibility into this data for insights to relevant stakeholders and to accelerate progress toward
sustainability. In a nutshell, these are the central concepts of transparency and traceability that will
underpin the sustainable supply chains of the future.
Traceability is the ability to collect comprehensive data about any supply chain
activity for disclosure purposes and to drive positive change.
A company might broadly state that "X percent of our
materials are sourced sustainably." However, it’s
important to dig deeper and understand the specific
types of materials involved and the certifications they
hold. This holds for any metric or data point measuring
supply chain activity.

In the third year of its STRIVE (Sustainable, Trusted, Resilient,
Intelligent, Velocity, and Efficiency) program, Schneider Electric
recognizes that walled organizational transformation is over.
They demonstrate collaborative progress with “The Zero Carbon
Project,” which has trained, resourced, guided, and supported
their suppliers. Participants reduced carbon emissions by 10% by
2022, which helped reduce Schneider Electric's supply chain
carbon footprint.
PepsiCo has several collaborations to use regenerative
agriculture principles to drive a more secure and sustainable
food supply.
High-tech leader Cisco Systems held the No. 1 spot for the third
consecutive year. Sustainability remains top of mind, with progress
made in Scope 1, 2, and 3 GHG reductions, a drop in virgin plastic,
improved sustainable packaging, and a 99.9% reuse or recycle of
products returned.

Pulling data from across a complex
supply chain network for transparency
and traceability is difficult. The first
challenge is ensuring the smooth flow of
data across disparate systems in
multiple organizations spanning the
supply chain network and paying
attention to data privacy norms and
conflicts of interest, such as a supply
chain partner working with more than
one company. The second set of
challenges centers on the requirement
for data to be safe and accurate and to
capture the information required to
track and meet reporting and
sustainability objectives.

Transparency is where data and insights about a supply chain activity are visible to
relevant stakeholders across the network. Senior managers can view the entire
supply chain, while teams and partners concerned with a certain activity might
have visibility only into the information surrounding it.
The Harmony program has developed a
strong and unique data reporting
system on farming practices, ensuring
full traceability from wheat storage to
plant. External Harmony audits are
conducted among Harmony partners
every year by independent and certified
organizations, such as SGS and Bureau
Veritas, to guarantee compliance.
With transparency and traceability,
companies can continuously
collaborate with supply chain
partners to improve sustainability.
For instance, Mondelez's Harmony
Wheat program offers guidance to
farmers who are its supplier
partners on sustainable practices
such as minimizing water and
waste in farming and increasing
biodiversity.
of the wheat for Mondelez’s European
biscuits comes from the Harmony
program and the goal is 100% by 2030.

The process starts with gathering certifications and ingredient data for a material.
GTIN (Global Trade Identification Number) data establishes which product in one
database corresponds to a product in another database. Especially across
organizational boundaries, GTIN data helps standardize product traceability across
the globe with the origin of the material carefully traced. All the data collected
about the material from diverse sources is harmonized, ensuring consistency and
clarity. The consolidation process must have checks and balances in place that
ensure that local and cross-border laws and confidentiality are not violated. Finally,
the data is cross-functionally and cross-entity integrated, resulting in a unified
source of truth for complete supply chain traceability. When a customer starts this
process for a certain material, they build a robust data foundation for transparency
and traceability for the entire supply chain.
For instance, farmers might provide information about the organic status of their corn or the
certifications associated with their agricultural methods. This information needs to be translated into a
standardized format that can be used to calculate KPIs like the percentage of sustainably sourced
agrarian materials. At first glance, this looks straightforward, but large companies procure hundreds of
materials worldwide that must comply with internal norms and numerous regional and global
certifications. This makes traceability modeling a complex yet critical step that must be executed
efficiently, accurately, and comprehensively to establish data-driven supply chain sustainability.
Once data consolidation brings clean, accurate data to a single place, the next step
is organizing the data to track and analyze the journey of a product or material
through its entire supply chain, from raw materials to the finished product in the
hands of the consumer.
Let us unpack a step-by-step approach to how these challenges can be overcome
with a focus on the sourcing side of the supply chain.

Data consolidation
Traceability Modeling
With data in one place and available in a format that can support the measurability
of important KPIs, one can begin to generate reports that track the performance of
suppliers from the first tier to the nth tier. These reports can unlock transparency for
internal teams, external partners, and auditors. Automated disclosures of a regular
frequency can flag risks such as deviations of the KPIs from acceptable norms
preemptively so they can be mitigated quickly.
Supply Chain Reporting
This can be specific to a raw
material, e.g., recycled
plastic or certified palm oil.
This broad metric reflects a
commitment to
sustainability and can be
used to set targets and for
external reporting.

A ‘Traceability Cockpit’ provides supply chain teams with
an analytics-rich, multidimensional view of their supply
chain network at their fingertips 24/7 to accelerate the
journey toward sustainability.
At this point, the company may find a lack of
transparency in the sustainability aspect of a
certain part of their supply chain. For
example, information may be urgently
needed on the sustainability practices of
palm oil suppliers in a certain geography.
Here, ATOM. AI can be deployed to collect the
required data from palm oil suppliers. This
data and related insights will be available on
the company’s systems and dashboards
within a short period. Internal teams can use
the information to learn if the suppliers’
practices meet the relevant sustainability
criteria. When a supplier is not compliant,
internal experts or external consultants can
pinpoint the areas for improvement and help
the partner move in the right direction.
With the first step taken, the traceability
data for palm oil, including the relevant
metrics and insights, will be updated
regularly and shared across teams and
external suppliers. From thereon, the data
ecosystem can steadily cover the entire
supply chain network, entrenching
transparency and traceability.

Best–in-Class: Supply Chain Transparency & Traceability
The challenges of establishing supply chain transparency and traceability are as much of a process
and policy nature as they are technical. Sufficient processes and policies consider regional and
country-specific laws, organizational culture, partnership dynamics, and operational issues outside
technological control. For example, business partners may hesitate to reveal certain proprietary
information, or farmers in a particular region may lack stable internet access.
At Tredence, we not only have the technology and sustainability expertise but also the rich experience
gained from implementing data ecosystem projects in various sectors. Our team can help establish
and maintain data-sharing relationships in various on-the-ground situations and initiate the process

  • 3. https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com 03 In typical business functions like marketing or finance, most companies understand the landscape drawn from historical knowledge and the organization’s collective experience. The picture is different for sustainability. As ESG reporting has become more commonplace and increasingly mandated by regulation, organizations create dedicated teams for sustainability. In a world of climate change and environmental degradation, businesses are under growing pressure to incorporate sustainability across all their activities, from manufacturing to employee travel, with little or no prior experience to pave a clear path forward. This leaves companies and their sustainability teams to monitor a wide spectrum of ESG parameters in compliance with rapidly evolving regulations and stakeholder expectations, all while acting in a way that will drive impactful change. The expectations are higher for big companies operating across borders. These organizations have a larger footprint and considerably greater influence over their business partners. Key stakeholders, such as investors and customers, now expect these big conglomerates to use this influence to hardwire sustainability practices within their operations and supply chain. The supply chain, which spans the entire business from raw material extraction to the hands of the final consumer, quite understandably falls under scrutiny as a part of this growing focus on sustainability, especially given the complex, sprawling nature of global supply chains today. Large companies are driven by a combination of stakeholder pressure and internally motivated zeal, on a mission to propagate environmentally and socially responsible practices throughout their supply chain.
  • 4. The key to succeeding with any sustainable supply chain journey boils down to data and visibility. Businesses need the ability to record important data across their supply chain network and provide real-time visibility into this data for insights to relevant stakeholders and to accelerate progress toward sustainability. In a nutshell, these are the central concepts of transparency and traceability that will underpin the sustainable supply chains of the future. Traceability is the ability to collect comprehensive data about any supply chain activity for disclosure purposes and to drive positive change. A company might broadly state that "X percent of our materials are sourced sustainably." However, it’s important to dig deeper and understand the specific types of materials involved and the certifications they hold. This holds for any metric or data point measuring supply chain activity. https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com 04 In the third year of its STRIVE (Sustainable, Trusted, Resilient, Intelligent, Velocity, and Efficiency) program, Schneider Electric recognizes that walled organizational transformation is over. They demonstrate collaborative progress with “The Zero Carbon Project,” which has trained, resourced, guided, and supported their suppliers. Participants reduced carbon emissions by 10% by 2022, which helped reduce Schneider Electric's supply chain carbon footprint. PepsiCo has several collaborations to use regenerative agriculture principles to drive a more secure and sustainable food supply. High-tech leader Cisco Systems held the No. 1 spot for the third consecutive year. Sustainability remains top of mind, with progress made in Scope 1, 2, and 3 GHG reductions, a drop in virgin plastic, improved sustainable packaging, and a 99.9% reuse or recycle of products returned.

  • 5. Pulling data from across a complex supply chain network for transparency and traceability is difficult. The first challenge is ensuring the smooth flow of data across disparate systems in multiple organizations spanning the supply chain network and paying attention to data privacy norms and conflicts of interest, such as a supply chain partner working with more than one company. The second set of challenges centers on the requirement for data to be safe and accurate and to capture the information required to track and meet reporting and sustainability objectives. BUILDINGADATAECOSYSTEM FORSUPPLYCHAINTRANSPARENCY ANDTRACEABILITY https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com 05 Transparency is where data and insights about a supply chain activity are visible to relevant stakeholders across the network. Senior managers can view the entire supply chain, while teams and partners concerned with a certain activity might have visibility only into the information surrounding it. The Harmony program has developed a strong and unique data reporting system on farming practices, ensuring full traceability from wheat storage to plant. External Harmony audits are conducted among Harmony partners every year by independent and certified organizations, such as SGS and Bureau Veritas, to guarantee compliance. With transparency and traceability, companies can continuously collaborate with supply chain partners to improve sustainability. For instance, Mondelez's Harmony Wheat program offers guidance to farmers who are its supplier partners on sustainable practices such as minimizing water and waste in farming and increasing biodiversity. of the wheat for Mondelez’s European biscuits comes from the Harmony program and the goal is 100% by 2030. 80% https://www.mondelezinternational.com/united-kingdom/news/harmony-ambition-2030/ https://www.mondelezinternational.com/united-kingdom/news/harmony-ambition-2030/ https://www.mondelezinternational.com/united-kingdom/news/harmony-ambition-2030/ https://www.mondelezinternational.com/united-kingdom/news/harmony-ambition-2030/ https://www.mondelezinternational.com/united-kingdom/news/harmony-ambition-2030/ https://www.mondelezinternational.com/united-kingdom/news/harmony-ambition-2030/ https://www.mondelezinternational.com/united-kingdom/news/harmony-ambition-2030/ https://www.mondelezinternational.com/united-kingdom/news/harmony-ambition-2030/ https://www.mondelezinternational.com/united-kingdom/news/harmony-ambition-2030/ https://www.mondelezinternational.com/united-kingdom/news/harmony-ambition-2030/ https://www.mondelezinternational.com/united-kingdom/news/harmony-ambition-2030/
  • 6. The process starts with gathering certifications and ingredient data for a material. GTIN (Global Trade Identification Number) data establishes which product in one database corresponds to a product in another database. Especially across organizational boundaries, GTIN data helps standardize product traceability across the globe with the origin of the material carefully traced. All the data collected about the material from diverse sources is harmonized, ensuring consistency and clarity. The consolidation process must have checks and balances in place that ensure that local and cross-border laws and confidentiality are not violated. Finally, the data is cross-functionally and cross-entity integrated, resulting in a unified source of truth for complete supply chain traceability. When a customer starts this process for a certain material, they build a robust data foundation for transparency and traceability for the entire supply chain. For instance, farmers might provide information about the organic status of their corn or the certifications associated with their agricultural methods. This information needs to be translated into a standardized format that can be used to calculate KPIs like the percentage of sustainably sourced agrarian materials. At first glance, this looks straightforward, but large companies procure hundreds of materials worldwide that must comply with internal norms and numerous regional and global certifications. This makes traceability modeling a complex yet critical step that must be executed efficiently, accurately, and comprehensively to establish data-driven supply chain sustainability. Once data consolidation brings clean, accurate data to a single place, the next step is organizing the data to track and analyze the journey of a product or material through its entire supply chain, from raw materials to the finished product in the hands of the consumer. Let us unpack a step-by-step approach to how these challenges can be overcome with a focus on the sourcing side of the supply chain. https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com https://www.tredence.com 06 Data consolidation Traceability Modeling With data in one place and available in a format that can support the measurability of important KPIs, one can begin to generate reports that track the performance of suppliers from the first tier to the nth tier. These reports can unlock transparency for internal teams, external partners, and auditors. Automated disclosures of a regular frequency can flag risks such as deviations of the KPIs from acceptable norms preemptively so they can be mitigated quickly. Supply Chain Reporting This can be specific to a raw material, e.g., recycled plastic or certified palm oil. This broad metric reflects a commitment to sustainability and can be used to set targets and for external reporting. % Sustainable sourcing Tracks partners' carbon footprint to identify improvement areas. Measures how effectively a business prevents harmful disposal. GHG emissions of supply chain partners (Scope 3) % Diversion from landfill

With multiple successful instances of helping global businesses build data environments for competitive advantage, ATOM.AI, Tredence’s end-to-end accelerator ecosystem for data engineering, meets these criteria. It can serve as a central hub for large companies to monitor and improve the sustainability practices of their supply chain networks. The solution has proven its ability in various sectors and use cases to aggregate and harmonize data across internal and external sources and ensure the completeness of inputs for models, dashboards, and reports. ATOM.AI also has advanced capabilities to automate the crucial data-sharing processes that span the ecosystem, so speed and accuracy are not a concern. Additionally, Tredence experts have the know-how to standardize these processes from a regulatory compliance standpoint. Finally, the solution can help build user-friendly dashboards and provide state-of-the-art analytics. A company often begins using ATOM.AI to improve visibility within its operations. The solution can resolve the complexity of managing data across multiple plants and production processes and provide teams with data streams that can be used for AI/ML models and single-pane-of-glass views of inventory and manufacturing processes. IDENTIFYINGACENTRALHUBFORSUSTAINABLE SUPPLYCHAINMANAGEMENT THETECHNOLOGYADOPTIONCURVEFOR SUPPLYCHAINTRANSPARENCYANDTRACEABILITY A ‘Traceability Cockpit’ provides supply chain teams with an analytics-rich, multidimensional view of their supply chain network at their fingertips 24/7 to accelerate the journey toward sustainability. At this point, the company may find a lack of transparency in the sustainability aspect of a certain part of their supply chain. For example, information may be urgently needed on the sustainability practices of palm oil suppliers in a certain geography. Here, ATOM. AI can be deployed to collect the required data from palm oil suppliers. This data and related insights will be available on the company’s systems and dashboards within a short period. Internal teams can use the information to learn if the suppliers’ practices meet the relevant sustainability criteria. When a supplier is not compliant, internal experts or external consultants can pinpoint the areas for improvement and help the partner move in the right direction. With the first step taken, the traceability data for palm oil, including the relevant metrics and insights, will be updated regularly and shared across teams and external suppliers. From thereon, the data ecosystem can steadily cover the entire supply chain network, entrenching transparency and traceability.

  • 9. The challenges of establishing supply chain transparency and traceability are as much of a process and policy nature as they are technical.

Please visit: www.tredence.com We partner with our clients in building a comprehensive and future-proof solution for supply chain sustainability that can deliver lasting impact. The solutions deliver more than simple supply chain transparency and traceability. We build the digital infrastructure to capture and aggregate that data across entire networks to provide optimized metrics and reports. However, information by itself is not very useful. A solution built with ATOM.AI provides a multidimensional ‘Traceability Cockpit’ that mines this data to equip clients with advanced analytics and insights to drive actionability internally and with external partners toward supply chain sustainability goals. The solution's flexibility enables extended transparency and traceability anywhere within or outside an organization. In addition to the preparedness of data for state-of-the-art analytics and global reporting standards, this will set your supply chain network firmly on course for lasting sustainability.
