Blue EcoChain enables brands to track their suppliers in China for environmental compliance at scale, and receive automated updates on regulatory violations and environmental remediation continuously. Powered by IPE's Blue Map Database, Blue EcoChain provides the most efficient means of supply chain oversight.

What's more, by allowing multiple parties, including suppliers themselves, access to synchronized alerts, Blue EcoChain shifts the conventional dynamic of brands policing suppliers to one of equal participation, in which suppliers feel individually responsible for compliance problems as they arise, without the need for a push from their clients each time. Blue EcoChain thereby forges partnerships in environmental risk management centered on solving problems expeditiously.

How does it work?

For Brands

  • Register an account on the IPE website and request for an upgrade to a brand account;

  • Search suppliers by name and click to 'follow' them, hence adding a list of facilities into the brand account;

  • Receive automated updates via the Blue Map app or email when a supplier: receives a new violation record exceeds pollutant standards in their hourly monitoring data (only available for designated high-impact enterprises) publishes new environmental data, rectification plans or audit reports

  • Train suppliers to track their own supply chain performance via the Blue EcoChain.

For Suppliers

  • Register an account on the IPE website and upgrade to a corporate account;

  • Publish explanations on violations or excessive emissions;

  • Disclose environmental data;

  • Receive automated updates via the Blue Map app or email when the corporate user: receives a new violation record exceeds pollutant standards in hourly monitoring data (only available for designated high-impact enterprises) receives notice regarding GCA audit, information disclosure or environmental data reporting status

  • Search its own suppliers, wastewater and hazardous waste treatment facilities by name, click to 'follow' them, and receive automated updates via the Blue Map app or email on their environmental performances.
