How it works

Connect

Calculate

Integrate

Our platform connects with ERP systems like SAP and PLM systems like Centric to automatically pull product-specific data from bill of materials and purchase orders

Our Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) engine calculates an accurate PCF using a combination of primary facility data and science-backed emission factors

Our platform integrates all your internal activity data and uses PCFs and robust emission factor databases to power accurate carbon accounting for Scope 1, 2, and 3 as per the GHG protocol

Meet the Founders

  • Can you help us with Corporate GHG accounting and reporting?
    Yes, we can! We can help you measure emissions across all 3 Scopes of the GHG Protocol and report them as per global reporting frameworks like CDP, GRI, TCFD, etc, and European standards such as CSRD.
  • Why do you leverage Product Carbon Footprints (PCFs) for Scope 3 accounting?
    Using Product Carbon Footprints has several benefits: Product-specific emission accounting is the most accurate and comprehensive way to measure Scope 3 emissions. Industry-wide efforts acknowledging the same are currently underway such as the Pathfinder framework from WBCSD. Avoids the use of spend-based calculation or pure purchase-volume based allocation of supplier emissions which leads to over or under-counting of emissions. Helps brands prepare for upcoming regulations around measuring and disclosing product-specific emissions such as the decree to disclose climate impact information on apparel products in France. Gives brands insights into product-specific emission hotspots and helps them measure the impact of reduction initiatives in the supply chain.
  • What methodology do you use to measure Product Carbon Footprints?
    At Carbon Trail, we are making product life-cycle assessment (LCA) fast & easy for any fashion product. Our methodology is aligned with the upcoming PEFCR for Apparel & Footwear and the ISO 14067 standard. Additionally, our methodology and software have been verified by an independent 3rd party as well.
  • Can you incorporate primary supply chain data in Product Carbon Footprints and Scope 3?
    Yes, we can! Incorporating primary supply chain data is critical for accurate Scope 3 accounting and measuring the impact of any implemented reduction initiatives. We can ingest any primary supply chain activity or emission data you're collecting through other software tools or spreadsheets.
  • Can you help collect primary supply chain data too?
    Yes, Carbon Trail also facilitates data exchange with your supplier facilities. Carbon Trail provides access to its platform for each of your suppliers where they can upload their facility data on a regular basis. Carbon Trail enables supplier engagement on its platform allowing sustainability teams to assign tasks, review supplier progress, and validate supplier facility data. Carbon Trail also leverages ML/AI to detect anomalies in supplier facility data, making it easier for brands to coordinate with suppliers and get accurate data.
  • How is your solution better than generic carbon accounting software?
    Generic carbon accounting tools lack the fashion-specific depth needed to solve Scope 3 accurately: They can't integrate and accurately allocate any collected primary activity or emission data from facilities. They use product or fabric-level industry-average emission factors which don't account for variables such as yarn size, recycled materials, spinning methods, etc. They don’t provide insights on product-specific emissions. Without a foundation on accurate Scope 3 numbers, you won't realize the impact of any improvements made in your value chain.
