Bringing transparency to global supply chains

Through a decentralised approach we combine transparency and secured privacy to enable the industry to make valid claims about sustainability. We do not feel that anyone should be the central authority of new transparent and circular supply chains, that’s why we accelerate the transition towards a Circular Economy using an Open Protocol approach.
