Demo data provides you with insight into the sort of data MobiCycle collects. Here, we focus on the relevant data around the management of electronics and electricals for Scope 3 emissions, biodiversity and pollution in the disposals sector.
The EU wants high impact sectors to transition to become low impact across emissions, biodiversity and pollution. Although the EE waste sector, is focused more on pollution and biodiversity, GHGs are released when eWaste is incinerated, as the devices decompose or rust in landfills. Moreover, plastics that form part the devices, such as low-density polyethylene, release methane (CH4) and ethylene (H2C4) when exposed to sunlight.
We monitor changes in indigenous vegetation, new construction of river dams, rehabilitated pit lakes, restored lakes, indigenous tree planting, the ratio of resident versus migratory bird species, wetland policies, remote and undeveloped areas, endemic, native vascular plant species, majority of their mines in biodiversity hotspots. Invasive species at landfills can disrupt and displace neighbouring ecosystems. They can range from fungus and disease-causing microorganisms to plants and algae.
The type of data collected relies upon whether the supplier is required to recycle, to pay for collection programs and fund education programs. In the US, the Resource Conservation and Recovery ACT of 1976 (RCRA) only regulates the disposal of CRT monitors. eWaste when landfilled poisons the air, soil, and water with chemicals like lead (a neurotoxin), nickel, cadmium, mercury, and arsenic. All of the following, except arsenic, can take up to 20 years or more to decompose.
3rd party data integrates data generated from your operations, purchased from third parties such as MobiCycle Tech or collected from your downstream suppliers. Develop your strategies around data that measures impact. As Scope 3 emissions reporting matures, we need to move beyond simple yes/no questions, or even questions of materiality. A range of data sources allows you to focus on value creation. Stakeholders want ESG programs to go beyond the identification and management of risks. They want to make an impact and that means soliciting feedback from a range of sources.
Supply chains are subject to increased scrutiny. The journey to impactful electronics management begins within your organization. Protect your brand from claims of greenwashing. Consider how data from HR, Supply Chain, ERP systems, and even corporate sustainability reports can build a story around your processes. Less than 4,000 of global leading companies publicly disclose emissions. Finally, show how the data you collect fits into an overall strategy. For example, Tesla was removed the S&P 500 ESG Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) due to its lack of a carbon strategy. Publicly disclose your goals, your plans to achieve your goals and the methods you will use to demonstrate sucess or failure.
Perhaps you purchase data from ESG Data providers. This data can be useful for competitor analysis, and to fill in gaps that your suppliers are unable to provide, or simply to confirm what they have reported to you. We can integrate this data with your data or present it on its own. For example, ESG Book provides Scope 3 emissions for over 30,000 listed corporates, covering the majority of top global indices. And over 250 financial institutions globally are collaborating on a project to disclose emissions generated by their investments and loans. The PCAF disclose the suitablility of their financed emissions. You can access emissions data for your electronics and electricals supply chain if the supplier has listed equity and corporate bonds, like common stock, business loans and unlisted equity, lines of credit used for capital expenditures and project finance, like loans used to build a bridge.
With MobiCycle's technology solutions, you can further contextualize your data. Gauge opinion about your performance on sustainability, as it relates to electronics and electricals. Bring in sustainability descriptions and definitions to help make sense of the data you are seeing. Boost your dashboard by embedding virtual reality. Bring in environmental policies to add further context to the data. If you purchased Where are WEEE?, you can view that data on MobiCycle Consulting's dashboard as well as on the Where are WEEE dashboard.
Perhaps your supplier completes a questionnaire. We can integrate this data with your data or present it on its own. Supplier data can be used to create a robust picture of your operations. Asking questions can encourage your supplier to redesign their processes that generate Scope 1 and 2 emissions. Data from your waste supplier helps you understand (or audit) your abandoned electronic waste. We can work with your upstream suppliers to help them complete questionnaires. The mining, manufacturing, and many traditional sectors are underinvested because they fail the ESG test. More data can help them overcome this ban. For example, mining companies can reduce their emissions by relying on 'green' ammonia through water-electrolysis.
Template data provides you with insight into the sort of data MobiCycle collects. You can upload data relevant to Scope 3 emissions data, biodiversity and pollution for electronics and electricals. Not sure what to put into your template? You can review other templates such as the Extended Minerals Reporting Template (EMRT).
Our standard template asks for line number, data and time information, text description, numerical information (usually beginning), numerical information (usually ending), type of visualisation. You can also request a custom report.
