Calculation of the Product Carbon Footprint from Cradle to Gate.

As sustainability becomes a core requirement for product development, it's essential for manufacturers to not only incorporate it into their design process, but also to reduce the CO₂ content of their purchased parts. Tset offers a reliable method for achieving both goals.

You can benefit from:

Traceable calculation of the CO₂ footprint

AI-based algorithms ensure faster and consistent calculation creation and provide real-time monitoring to reduce environmental impact and costs.

High synergy with cost calculation

With our instant-on enterprise cloud solution, you can analyse product cost and the CO₂ emissions in one calculation.

Reduced IT costs and complexity

Accessible software solution for all competence levels - ensuring one single source of truth in the cloud.

Don’t just take our word for it.

World-leading players of the manufacturing industry already rely on Tset.

Sustainability and digitalization are important levers and focal points for the ZF Group. We rely on Tset because it is a modern solution that offers us efficiency gains and transparency in the RfQ phase.

How exactly does Tset work?

Our enterprise cloud-solution for Product Cost and Carbon Footprint Management combines data-driven algorithms and hands-on industry knowledge, saving cost and carbon in just five simple steps:

01 Define

02 Create

03 Analyze

04 Adjust

05 Collaborate

Describe your components by entering just a few parameters and select a shape to create calculations within minutes by using automated algorithms or by uploading your own 3D model.

An analysis of all cost & carbon drivers will be calculated based on AI algorithms and an internal knowledge base. Get a rough estimate for cost & carbon, or explore the fine details with just a click.

Instant data-driven calculations give you a detailed analysis of all cost & carbon drivers, helping you understand the dynamics between technical requirements, commercial constraints and sustainability targets over your whole product range.

Gain greater transparency and identify potentials by creating scenarios and comparing results with ease, e.g. comparison of supplier breakdown, currency changes, quantity units etc.

The central knowledge base for Cost and CO₂ information aids in uncovering optimization opportunities among various departments, allowing simple action through direct communication via the tool.

The main challenges you face. 

Tset boldly faces these challenges with its unique combination of industry know-how and innovative software solutions.


Supplier not ready to deliver primary CO₂-breakdowns

With regulations now extending to Scope 3, manufacturers lack the necessary resources and expertise to improve the sustainability of their complex supply chains, making it a significant challenge to manage and optimize their sustainability efforts.


Buyers demand CO₂-breakdowns in RFQ process

New regulations from the government demand CO₂ content determination and buyers request information about the Product Carbon Footprint.


Lack of collaboration with sustainability department

Each department using different tools and systems leads to inaccurate data, high error rates and a lack of transparency. Without a streamlined system in place, effective collaboration becomes impossible, putting your bottom line at risk.

 data packages

  • 11.600 material data points
  • 5.000 machines with invest, depreciation time, space, and energy / maintenance / consumable rate
