Can you count the environmental and financial impact of your packaging and logistics?
At Nefab, we have a long history of calculating in order to save resources. We know that small changes in packaging and logistics can make a big difference. GreenCalc is an efficient Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) software tool, developed to provide you with a thorough analysis of the environmental impact of your logistics flow. Based on the results, we can design new packaging solutions to reduce your costs as well as your carbon footprint.
Transportation and packaging have a major impact on CO2eq emissions and global warming in both local and global trade. Sustainable solutions are critical in this area, yet they are frequently overlooked.
Today, most packaging is employed in a linear flow. This generates massive amounts of waste and pollution. Therefore, we design for longer resource utilization, making packaging reusable and recyclable.
The improper recycling of the majority of packaging poses a significant challenge, hindering the process of moving to a more circular use of resources. At Nefab, we strive towards circular packaging solutions to improve the management of waste.
Unoptimized packaging practices in transportation result in inefficient use of cargo space, resulting in ships, trucks, and aircrafts "shipping air". More efficient packing solutions will help maximize cargo capacity while reducing the transportation industry's carbon footprint.
GreenCalc is Nefab's LCA software, a trusted and proven data-driven tool that tracks and quantifies all financial and environmental data in your supply chain. With GreenCalc we can save resources, together.
The GreenCalc process
Developed in collaboration with PRé-Sustainability, an expert environmental consultancy company, and powered by SimaPro, one of the leading LCA software tools.
Using ISO14040 and 14044 LCA guidelines, Ecoinvent is an environmental database provider, and ReCiPe 2016 MIDPOINT Hierarchist LCA methodology.
Analysis of multiple impact categories, such as Global Warming Potential (GWP), water and energy consumption, and multiple materials, transportation modes and logistics flows, including one-way and returnable.
We first started counting with GreenCalc in 2011. Since then, we have consistently worked to transform it into a powerful tool for calculating savings and enhancing results for our customers.
*On average, since 2021, based on more than 3000 GreenCalc calculations, comparing existing packaging solutions with new improved Nefab solutions.
Driven by the company's new long-term sustainability goals, Permobil collaborated with Nefab to implement smarter packaging solutions that resulted in a 20% reduction in carbon footprint and 15% cost savings in the global supply chain, as well as improved workflow efficiencies.
Our ambition is to save 10M tons of CO2eq emissions in our customers' supply chains by 2030.
From January 2021 until now, 700 000 tons of CO2eq emissions have been saved.
