Trinseo integrated the automated calculation of the carbon footprint of its entire portfolio thanks to Atos

VSe partnership allows Trinseo to move up a gear in terms of net zero emissions ambition

Paris (France), June 22, 2022 – Atos and Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions company and manufacturer of latex-based plastics and binders, today announced that Trinseo has selected a digital solution recently offered by Atos to characterize and monitor the carbon of its entire portfolio. Trinseo will be able to provide its customers with more accurate data on the carbon footprint of its products while accelerating its net zero emissions ambitions, thereby giving substance to its emissions transparency commitments.

From June to the end of 2022, Trinseo will rely on Atos and its digital solution for calculating the carbon footprint of chemical industry products in order to disseminate strategic information with a view to deploying the solution within the company, in accordance with its data environment and its SAP ecosystem. After rolling out the tool to all of its operational units, Trinseo should eventually be able to provide automated information on the carbon footprint of all of its products.

The carbon footprint calculation tool (SCOTT) and the methodology developed by BASF are based on a life cycle assessment method. The carbon footprint of products is calculated from their manufacture until they leave the factory. Atos has been selected as an accessible partner to develop and qualify a software platform to deliver this tool and methodology to industry players. The methodology is based on the ISO 14067:2018 product carbon footprint standard, which builds on the principles and requirements of ISO 14040:2006 and 14044:2006.

” While Trinseo communicated on the carbon footprint of all of its activities for many years, the process applied to its products are still manual and extremely laborious »noted Julien Returns, Rresponsible Development Dlivable at the house of Trinseo. “Starting with a few of our flagships, we will explore how to automate the process with the help of Atos and its carbon footprint calculation platform. »

“Our assessment has shown that Trinseo is already well offered to automate the calculation of the carbon footprint of its products thanks to its SAP data and processes »declared Stefan Unterhuber, Drector Ssuperior in charge of Transformation Zero Eassignment NOTette at Atos. ” She has however revealed areas for improvement. With this pilot project, our phased approach will allow us to gradually unify the process for primary data, improve the quality of secondary data and, finally, provide Trinseo precise and transparent data on the carbon footprint of each product, in a fully automated way. »

For Trinseo and Atos, this project is an important contribution to the net zero emissions economy and a perfect example of how digital technologies can be used to monitor and manage greenhouse gas emissions.
