The ‘Factor’ field found in your customer request (on the ‘Clients’ page) is for you to indicate the proportion of your data that relates to your customer. You are asked for this information so that Ecodesk can provide your customer with aggregated values of embedded supply chain impacts – that is, the responsibility that your customer has over the environmental footprint of its suppliers based on its spend on suppliers’ products and services. If indicating a percentage, most companies calculate this based on the customer’s spend as a proportion of the company’s revenue.
