Gain end-to-end visibility of your companies’ supply chain environmental footprint with o9 Sustainability Solutions

For most enterprises, their largest environmental impacts occur within the supply chain. Therefore, the majority of emissions, energy and water consumption, and waste production are outside of their direct control.

With o9, enterprises can take action to gain greater visibility into their impact across the supply chain, and to better manage and improve their overall sustainability performance.

Up to 90% of the negative environmental impact of companies lies in their value chains, and the dire effects of inaction are already here. The time to take action is now.
