How ProNaWi Works

What sustainability data does the world need? And where to get it?

We have the “machine” that can provide the missing data.
ProNaWi enables the automated calculation of the Ecological Footprint of your product. This enables you or the stakeholders in your value chain to make informed, Within the framework of the FFG-funded project ProNaWi, we have developed a system for the “automatic” calculation of the Sustainable Impact of products. For this purpose, ProNaWi can access existing lifecycle databases. On this basis and in comparison with similar reference products, ProNaWi calculates for example the CO2 equivalents. In addition, the system also indicates the accuracy of the calculated value – the more data available, the more valid the statement. Machine Learning leads to a constant improvement of the data quality. Combined with data such as from the value chain – ProNaWi can be easily integrated into merchandise management systems via interfaces – this provides high-quality, constantly updated sustainability information on products.

Who can benefit from ProNaWi?

  • The retail sector: display of the Sustainable Product Impact (CO2e) – in the sense of “dual pricing” – on the shelf/ in the webshop
  • System providers who want to automatically implement sustainability information for their digital offers (e.g., ERP, Business Intelligence, Consumer Apps…)
  • Database operators who want to expand the quantity, quality and utilisation of their data.

How we can work together

  • Database operators à establishing scientific and commercial collaborations
  • For scientists à to collect high quality sustainability data
  • Industry representatives à for the development of industry-appropriate solutions
  • Producers, suppliers and retailers à to identify effective levers to green the life cycle
  • Sustainability managers à  to develop solutions or digital systems relevant to sustainable decisions, including interfaces to organisational software
  • For municipalities, schools or other governmental institutions à  to illustrate, visualise and experience sustainability assessments
  • For all other applications that are based on a constantly updated, self-learning sustainability assessment
