Quantis partner Olam wins 2020 Reuters Responsible Supply Chain award

Congratulations, Olam! 

Our partner, Olam International, received the 2020 Responsible Supply Chain Award, from Reuters Events’ Responsible Business Awards, for its sustainable sourcing solution AtSource. Quantis is proud to have built the environmental footprinting tool in AtSource. This makes it the most complete and comprehensive sustainable sourcing platform in the agri-food sector. We’re excited that AtSource is being recognized for its leadership in transparent and sustainable agri-food sourcing.

Responsible Sourcing Supply Chain Award

“This project is an important and ambitious undertaking for Olam and I could not think of a better partner than Quantis for it. Quantis’ unique combination of expertise in environmental science and creativity, has made this project a success.”

Tom Oldfield, PhD
AtSource Metric Manager

With demand for sustainable products on the rise, supply chain transparency has become a top priority for food and beverage companies. Olam partnered with Quantis to develop the Digital Footprint Calculator, a complement to AtSource, that converts agricultural and processing data into comprehensive insights on environmental impacts. It allows users to understand the environmental footprint of products across different supply chains and geographies from the farm-level up to the customer, empowering them with the data they need to identify hotspots and track progress on their sustainability targets.

Here’s what the judges had to say: “AtSource is a highly innovative and scalable plus well-established model that allows Olam’s customers – for the first time – to track the social and environmental footprint of a product from the farmer group, to their factory gate. It uses 150 economic, social and environmental metrics. Bringing transparency to what has been a rather opaque part of the commodity industry. Very much leading a new, sustainable path for their industry.”

Cheers to accelerating sustainable and transparent sourcing!
