Bext News—November 2018


Greetings, Muraho, Hola and Bonjour –

Check out our new Manifesto Video:

“And technology is being used to keep companies, countries, and entire industries honest…That doesn’t make a better supply chain, it makes a better world.
”

SaaS Sustainability Module

At the recent World Knowledge Forum in Seoul, South Korea, our CEO announced the release of a new set of sustainability features added to our traceability SaaS platform.

Now, organizations can blockchain the integration of traceability data and sustainability metrics within our software to provide a 360-degree view of their supply chain and sustainable development activities. Our sustainability library includes thousands of metrics to address economic, environmental, governance and social priorities. Based on United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), best practices and certification requirements, a company’s unique sustainability model is developed to target its specific goals – immediate and long term. The framework is tailored to a customer’s unique needs by assessing nodes, lots, unique practices and advancements on existing sustainability initiatives.
