Traceability and provenance apps in commodity supply chains

Traceability and provenance are of growing importance across all commodities, no longer confined to select agricultural products and luxury goods. Scrutiny from legislators, regulators, consumers and auditors are continually adding new challenges and complexity to demonstrating a product’s provenance: with CO2 emissions and carbon offsetting being added to concerns such as food safety, workers’ rights, deforestation and more.

Where commodity management apps save time and improve turnover

Trading faster may allow commodity businesses to generate greater returns from a wide range of assets – not only physical commodities, but counterparty relationships and their employees’ valuable time. Completing each trade faster allows these resources to be used to trade more volume; for example by freeing up credit lines to enable more transactions with a counterparty or reducing administration and allowing traders more time to explore new deal opportunities.

Biomass Sustainability: supply chains for 2020 and beyond

Environmental issues and climate change have played a larger role in the public consciousness in 2019 than possibly ever before. From Greta Thunberg’s Nobel Peace Prize nomination to the Extinction Rebellion protests that culminated in over 1,100 arrests in just one week in London, 2019 has been a year of climate activism. And within the biomass industry, where European subsidies in particular are closely linked to environmental issues and renewable energy targets, debate continues over how environmentally friendly biomass power generation really is.

Data visibility in biomass; improve risk, traceability & profitability

Demand for biomass energy generation continues to rise sharply. The use of bioenergy for electricity grew by 98% between 2008 and 2015, and the market for wood pellets in particular is expected to grow to $6150 million by 2024, up from $4120 in 2019. This provides many opportunities for biomass and energy traders, but it does also mean that the challenges the industry faces are changing as well. From increasing regulation to new players and changing market mechanisms, biomass companies need to be prepared to meet these new challenges as well as capitalise on new opportunities.

Traceability and Sustainability in the Biomass Supply Chain

Sustainability is one of the main challenges faced across the biomass supply chain. Savvy consumer demand and political influence impact on this sector more than possibly any other commodity, and a breakdown in traceability can mean both reputational damage and the withdrawal of critical subsidies. Due to the serious nature of these traceability risks, meeting sustainability reporting requirements can be one of the more onerous tasks facing stakeholders in the biomass supply chain.

Traceability Whitepaper - Prove it or Else!

Demand for the need to track commodities, consumables, and fuels from source to market continues to increase. It is no longer the case that buyers can simply pick the best price in choosing a supplier as concerns over issues like food safety, as well as an increasingly savvy consumer that is concerned over abusive labor practices, workers rights, and environmental issues, for example, are increasing the traceability complexity across almost all supply chains.
