Normative for manufacturing

As supply chains face fluctuating prices of energy and transportation, many manufacturers are searching for sustainable and ethical suppliers to reduce risk in the value chain.

At the same time, distributors and retailers are demanding comprehensive, rigorous carbon reporting from manufacturers.

Normative provides accurate carbon calculations throughout the supply chain, empowering manufacturers to minimize risk and comply with reporting requirements.


Manufacturing generates a significant amount of carbon, but accounting for those emissions is particularly challenging.

Barriers to accurate carbon reporting

Manufacturers work with suppliers from all over the world, and the quantity of data can make it time-consuming to achieve even basic emissions calculations.

In addition, these suppliers’ geographic spread and varying levels of digitalization can lead to inconsistent data quality and coverage.

It’s next to impossible to thoroughly analyze this big data without digital solutions.
