Hyundai and Kia introduce blockchain-based CO2 emission monitoring system for suppliers

Hyundai Motor Company and Kia Corporation have introduced an AI-enabled, blockchain-based Supplier CO2 Emission Monitoring System (SCEMS) to manage the carbon emissions of its cooperative business partners or suppliers.

SCEMS is designed to compute carbon emissions at every stage of a cooperative partner’s supply chain while assuring data transparency and integrity. Hyundai Motor and Kia state that they have “successfully verified the effectiveness of the high-performance blockchain technology and adopted it to accomplish their critical goal of promptly and securely collecting carbon emissions data.”

This solution is also expected to relieve suppliers from this time- and cost-consuming work and enable them to manage their carbon emissions with accuracy. By leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance blockchain technology, business partners can efficiently monitor and manage the collected data and carbon emission status at their respective workplaces.

With this system, Hyundai Motor and Kia ultimately aim to tackle climate change issues by preemptively meeting local and global environmental regulations and establishing sustainable supply chains within the companies and with its cooperative partners.

“Supplier CO2 Emission Monitoring System unlocks a revolutionary approach to managing carbon emissions and combating climate change, ushering in a new era of sustainable supply chain within our cooperative network,” said Seung Hyun Hong, Head of Materials Research and Engineering Center at Hyundai Motor and Kia. “

With SCEMS, it is possible to secure reliable carbon emission data over the entire business operations of its suppliers, including raw material procurement, manufacturing processes and product transportation. The system’s next-generation technology will enable regulators, stakeholders and investors to have complete confidence in the accuracy of the data. 

The implementation of blockchain technology to manage carbon emissions is a significant step toward promoting sustainable practices in the industry. Integrating AI technology and high-performance blockchain will enable it and its partners to set carbon reduction targets and accurately predict future carbon emissions, fostering practical climate change mitigation efforts.

Climate change is a pressing global issue and reducing carbon emissions is one of the most critical steps toward mitigating its impact. Like Hyundai and Kia, a host of leading global automakers are developing their own strategies to reduce their carbon footprint.
