Assuring a seamless way to gather reliable data for sustainable supply chain verification


Regulatory demands such as the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) as well as its anti-deforestation regulations concerning imported products are an ever-increasing concern for manufacturers in all industries. These include players in agri-food, automotive, textiles, metal & minerals, and electric batteries. In addition to regulations, you are facing increasingly smart consumer demands to embed traceability into your business models.

More and more, you need to demonstrate that the products you manufacture are produced sustainably, using responsible sourcing all along the supply chain. You must ensure full transparency of parent-child logistics connections throughout the chain. And you need to remain proactive rather than discover too late an issue somewhere between initial material sourcing and final delivery.


V-TRACE is a seamless way to associate reliable data with your product along the supply chain. We provide an independent view of your supply chain sustainability performance and offer traceability assurance of your supply chain.
