Press release from: Juniper Innovations

Swindon, Wiltshire, reducing carbon emissions is becoming an increasingly important part of any organisation’s supply chain activities around the globe. ISRetail is helping organisations meet these challenges.

To help carbon emission innovation, ISRetail, a leading supply chain software, warehouse management and RFID system solution and data management provider has just joined the work of the European Supply Chain Institute (ESCI) ‘Supply Chain Carbon Council’

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.

ISRetail joins the Council as a Lead Sponsor of the multiyear program promoting the application of RFID to ensure accurate tracking of emissions through the supply chain to product level. The program will also be highlighting the application of supporting Data Management technologies.

Data management provides the key to a sustainable supply chain because “If You Can Measure It You Can Manage It.” As a result ESCI believes industry needs to apply more, not less ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) 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.

As a result, the project’s aim to use RFID/NFC (near field communication) wireless sensing to bring a high level of visibility to a products emissions output, at all stages in the supply chain will be unrivalled and will looked to be harnessed on a global scale.

“To have an interrogatable label on all products that gives the true real time ‘Emissions Footprint’ of the product is invaluable to business and ultimately the consumer” comments John Connors, CEO of the European Supply Chain Institute.

“With the right education and data management support there is even greater potential for RFID to enable carbon emission tracking, streamline supply chains and in turn reduce emissions through green supply chain initiatives and activities. Consequently ISRetail are delighted to join with the Carbon Council’s RFID/NFC Tracking Carbon Emissions project as their RFID Data Management and Middleware partner” comments Richard Knight, Managing Director of ISRetail UK.
