SAN FRANCISCO and ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gravity Climate, a technology company helping industrial businesses and their supply chain partners manage their carbon footprint, and Xometry, the global online marketplace connecting enterprise buyers with suppliers of manufacturing services, today announced a new initiative that will help Xometry’s industrial customers make informed decisions to reduce the carbon footprint of their supply chains.
This new integration, powered by the Gravity API, instantly calculates carbon emissions estimates for Xometry order requests in real-time. Gravity Climate purpose-built the database for Xometry, incorporating the latest climate science and data related to product material, manufacturing processes, mass, and geography.
The Gravity API will address the vast majority of orders up until the point of sale on the Xometry Instant Quoting Engine®. With this information, procurement and sustainability teams can quickly:
- Measure Scope 3 emissions of their orders with greater ease and accuracy;
- Meet emissions disclosure commitments more confidently; and
- Inform current and future product design leading to a greener world.
Companies are increasingly taking proactive action to limit their greenhouse gas emissions across their industrial supply chains, starting with Scope 3 visibility.
“Industrial buyers are increasingly asked to track and make procurement decisions based on sustainability metrics, but lack the data necessary to do so,” said Saleh ElHattab, Founder and CEO of Gravity Climate. “We’re thrilled to bring product-level emissions visibility to industrial procurement through our work with Xometry.”
“Xometry is committed to helping organizations of all sizes create reliable and sustainable supply chains that limit greenhouse gas emissions and lead to a greener planet for the benefit of all,” said Matt Leibel, Xometry’s Chief Technology Officer. “Gravity’s core product offering is a software platform that makes it easy and cost-effective for companies to measure the emissions of their company and products, decarbonize their operations, and promote their sustainability efforts.”
