The SacsiN Start-up project was initiated in response to a common problem; the lack of a digital standardised method within supplier networks, including the food industry, to exchange information between buyer and seller related to sustainability, traceability, compliance and circularity.

Today SacsiN is a registered company, SacsiN AB, with a growing group of representatives from authorities and diverse industries with 70% funding from “Sweden’s Innovation Agency” (Vinnova) and 30% by companies involved in the project work.

In order to create an Industry Independent method that works in any geography, in any language, SacsiN will grow until go-live in 2022.

The SacsiN project-aim is that any company may, without an ever-increasing administrative burden, be able to make sustainable and safe procurement decisions, based on facts, instead of assumptions.

The SacsiN Start-up project was initiated in response to a common problem; the lack of a digital standardised method within supplier networks, including the food industry, to exchange information between buyer and seller related to sustainability, traceability, compliance and circularity.

In order to create an Industry Independent method that works in any geography, in any language, SacsiN will grow until go-live in 2022.

The SacsiN project-aim is that any company may, without an ever-increasing administrative burden, be able to make sustainable and safe procurement decisions, based on facts, instead of assumptions.

THE PROJECT MEMBERS
The project members of SacsiN come from a broad range of industries and authorities to ensure that the SacsiN methodology is industry- geography- and language independent.

The project is officially represented by IKEA of Sweden, H&M, Svanen and SacsiN AB through the financing by the Swedish Government (Vinnova). In total a group of over 20 organisations are providing inputs from their perspectives.

SENSE OF URGENCY There is a very strong movement towards increased regulations to support climate actions and circularity. Reporting requirements from nations, authorities and buyers. Expectations of having information available "on request" and without delay. B2B and end-customers' expectations of transparency. Increased amount of information exchange within the industrial supply networks.

The exchange of sustainability and compliance information is today signified by manual work, overflow of data formats and overlap of information. These are some areas that SacsiN will digitalise. Another important target area for SacsiN is the secondary errors that arise when moving down the supply chain to Tier 2, 3 and further. Already at Tier 2-3, the supply networks overlap between different industries e.g., IKEA restaurants and Subway probably share some of their suppliers for vegetarian food items.
