About the Data

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 manufacturing sector. Activities in this area relate to SDG12: Responsible consumption & production; SDG 9: Industry innovation & infrastructure; SDG 8: Decent work & economic growth; SDG6: clean water & sanitation; SDG 11: Sustainable cities & communities.

Scope 3 data

The data will answer questions such as, Does the plant operate from a country that is part of the Paris Agreement? Is the country on track to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius? Do the plant's activities support the country's nationally determined contributions? Do the EEs rely on hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), the fastest-growing greenhouse gases? Do the bulk of emissions come from the use of gases in their production processes such as F-gas emissions? Does the design reduce standby power? Does the supplier participate in the Energy Star in the US and the Energy-Related Products (ErP) Directive in Europe? Do the products offer digital solutions to resource-intensive sectors?

Biodiversity data

We look for changes surface and subsurface water and inland water areas, coastal and marine areas, species-rich regions due to eutriphication. Eutriphication creates algal blooms, dead zones, and fish kill zones. A common cause is air pollution from airborne Sulfur Dioxide(SO2) and Nitrogen Oxides (NO2). SO2 can damage tree and plant foliage, decrease their growth and cause acid rain. The semiconductor industry uses SO2 during the manufacturing process. The largest source of SO2 in the atmosphere is the burning of fossil fuels by power plants and other industrial facilities. We review your supplier to understand if they have undergone process improvements/source reduction, replaced their reliance on SO2 with alternative chemicals and/or have implemented destruction technologies.

Pollution data

We look for signs of marine and terrestrial ecotoxicity. Evidence may come in the form of fines due to a failure to install a double liner system, leachate collection and removal systems and leak detection system, run-on, run-off and wind dispersal controls, and construction quality assurance. We also follow reports on the prevalence of particulate matter (PM). For example, nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) is a colorless gas that is most hazardous by inhalation. It is used within the manufacturing of flat-panel displays, photovoltaics, LEDs and other microelectronics. The semiconductor industry also uses NF3 to clean the chambers that house silicon chips. NF3 is unregulated. Suppliers are not required to keep a record of their emissions. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) and dioxides of nitrogen (NOx). Electronics that are in a high sulfur environment fail much quicker. Sulfur comes from decaying organic material. Nitrous oxide is used as electrical insulators in microelectronic transistors. It is combined with silane (SiH4) to create oxide films (SiOx). When it corrodes, it releases greenhouse gases. Finally, we consider if local authorities require the manufacturer to fund recycling programs and/or education programs.

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.

Your operational data

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.

Your purchased data

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.

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.
