Transparency and traceability through blockchain
Technology reinventing business
SUPPLY CHAIN TRANSPARENCY
"Understanding where your products are coming from"
Over the last 6 years we have been mapping natural resource supply chains and building software to help governments and private companies demonstrate the legal origin and sustainability of the products they produce.
We have deployed our teams across the world to firstly map out the supply chain and collect whatever data is available. We then deploy our software providing a new level of visibility in what previously were opaque supply chains giving consumers very little information about where their products have originated or how they were produced.
We have run projects in the following supply chains: Fresh Fruit, Timber, Cocoa, Coffee, Sugar, Used Cooking Oil and Minerals (3Ts conflict minerals - Tin, Tantalum Tungsten).
In the following countries:
U.K, Holland, Chile, Peru, Cameroon, Ghana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Rwanda and South Africa.
CONAF - CHILEAN FORESTRY COMMISSION
Sistema de Trazibilidad de Bosque Nativo - STBN
In 2016 Elements was awarded a contract to develop a traceability system to track native forest timber in Chile.
Using our software, CONAF is replacing the paper based traceability system with mobile apps to monitor transports movements of precious native timber like Alerce.
Having a clear understanding of the timber movements will help CONAF to better manage the sustainability of their native forests for future generations to come.
UK Fruit importers
In 2017 Elements started working with UK importer Peter Gilding. We provide supply chain quality assurance services ensuring that the fruit arriving in the UK meets the previously agreed specifications. Our software provides full back to tree visibility detailing distance travelled, date since harvest and total CO2 emissions.
Blockchain changes one of the most importat aspects in delivering transparency, it maintains confidentiality for the supply chain actors. Your network is your secret sauce in commodity supply chains. If you reveal from whom you are sourcing your raw materials you risk the chances of being leap frogged by your customer to try and cut costs.
Blockchain allows you to keep your data confidential, there is no need to share your information with third parties. Through the use of cryptography the blockchain uses your network to authenticate your transactions whilst keeping your commercially sensitive data safe.
