The Potential of a Network-Centric Solution for Sustainability in Business Processes

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
versione breve Due to an increasing pressure from international regulation, customers
and other stakeholders, companies are increasingly experiencing the need to incorporate
sustainability considerations in their core business processes and daily
operations. For this purpose they require software solutions that simplify the collection,
analysis, and incorporation of sustainability indicators at the right
processes across their operations. However, prevailing systems are enterprisecentric
in the sense that they are owned and used by one focal company collecting
the data from different sources and using it for its internal decision making. This
paper will describe three example use cases where sustainability has a key role to
play and will provide an overview of major problems with the current state of the
art. In the second part of the paper, a new approach for sharing sustainability indicators
is introduced that enables many providers and consumers of environmental
data to connect to and leverage a common platform. Finally, the paper analyzes
the potential risks and benefits of introducing such a network platform, using the
three business use cases to illustrate the opportunities resulting from it.
