Wolters Kluwer Enablon and Makersite announce strategic collaboration
February 2, 2023 – Enterprises will more easily be able to progress toward achieving Net Zero and reaching their ESG (environmental, social, governance) goals, thanks to a new strategic collaboration between Wolters Kluwer Enablon and Makersite, who have announced they will work to help organizations manage Net Zero ambitions through decarbonizing supply chains. This involves data collection, modelling, reporting, planning, forecasting, and operational execution across all three Scopes of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Enablon is “a provider of integrated software solutions for risk and compliance, engineering and operations, ESG, and sustainability.” Makersite, a Germany-based startup, “brings sustainability and cost insights into the early-stage design process of product manufacturing.” The two companies say they will work “to provide consistent and consolidated reporting for clients to reach the shared goal of achieving Net Zero.”
“With Enablon’s strong Net Zero Program Management and Net Zero Implementation capabilities and Makersite’s cloud-based Product Lifecycle Intelligence solution, large companies can drive decarbonization of their operations and supply chains while also decreasing operational, material, and energy costs,” Wolters Kluwer said in a statement.
Makersite’s cloud-based AI solution combines data from the Enablon Vision Platform – now live with Version 9.4 – with more than 140 data sources, and then automatically generates digital twins of every product and process used by an organization and its value chain. These digital twins provide granular insights across more than 40 criteria, including GHG emissions, supply risk, costs, health & safety, and regulatory compliance.
The award-wining Enablon Vision Platform brings together EHS, risk, and operations in a single user interface. This linkage provides greater transparency in the workplace, breaking down silos and allowing for operations and risk personnel to have greater insight and visibility into key business functions. Hundreds of industry-leading enterprises and millions of users worldwide rely on Enablon’s solutions to reduce environmental impact, minimize risks, increase worker safety, prevent incidents from happening, and achieve regulatory compliance.
“The ability to provide auditable and actionable insights for Scope 3 GHG emissions has been the missing piece in Net Zero ambitions,” said Laurent Dechaux, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, Wolters Kluwer Enablon. “Working with Makersite makes it easier to track these insights related to upstream and downstream activity from within an organization’s supply chain. When paired with our existing Scope 1 and Scope 2 capabilities, we can provide a more complete view of GHG emissions throughout the supply chain.”
“Decarbonization has become the single biggest driver of innovation and disruption in the market. Capital deployment, regulations and competition are the key drivers for adoption, and the only thing that’s holding things back is a scalable way to measure and capitalize on opportunities to decarbonize,” added Neil D’Souza, Founder and CEO, Makersite. “Collaborating with Wolters Kluwer Enablon will help take Makersite’s breakthrough technology to a massive base of customers, and the joint proposition will accelerate progress towards a low-carbon future for our customers.”
Earlier this month Wolters Kluwer Enablon was named a Leader by the independent research firm Verdantix in its Green Quadrant: Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) Software 2023 report. The report compares offerings from 23 of the most prominent EHS platform vendors.
