About the project
On the Path to Carbon Neutrality
Oetiker Schweiz AG is pursuing a clear strategy to achieve its sustainability goals and the associated reduction of its CO2 footprint: Through a combination of internal efficiency measures and external projects, the world’s leading supplier of high-end fastening solutions for the automotive industry and for high-quality applications in industrial segments aims to become climate-neutral by 2035. To this end, greenhouse gas emissions are determined in three categories according to the international calculation tool “Greenhouse Gas Protocol” (GHG Protocol).
Identifying Scope 3 Emissions Effectively
Regarding Scope 1 emissions, which are emissions from own and controlled sources, Oetiker already has an overview on site level. Since the amount of global sites is limited, data
collection, calculation and analysis is done manually with Excel and Power BI – SAP data is not used for this yet. The same procedure is applicable for Scope 2, the determination
of emissions from purchased energy. However, Oetiker faced a challenge when it came to the Scope 3 calculation on additional emissions, which also include outbound deliveries:
“We manufacture billions of products every year,” explains Sonya D’Souza, Head Sustainability Oetiker Group. “The delivery volume and the number of third-party shipping
companies are correspondingly large.” So, the SAP S/4HANA ERP system has to provide the information on outbound transport activities – but how? While researching this, the
Oetiker team discovered a blog post from NTT DATA Business Solutions.
Choosing the Appropriate Development Partner
This blog initiated the first joint project: In excellent cooperation, an individual solution for capturing, calculating and analyzing the CO2 footprint was created. The NTT DATA
Follow us on team developed the overall solution design – and the APIs in S/4HANA to provide the data for SAP Analytics Cloud. The user-friendly dashboard in SAP Analytics Cloud was provided by the Oetiker team. “The application is based on the reuse of SAP S/4HANA standard building blocks,” reports Frank Jacobs, the NTT DATA Solution Architect who designed the overall solution.
