A world where the welfare of the animals controls market demand and pushes conservation and ethical innovation efforts forward
Responsible Systems is an MRV (measure, report, verify) platform for tracing animal protection in animal-derived products. We are committed to accelerating global animal protection by pre-competitive uniting the supply chains of animal-derived and animal-impacted industries and products.
We believe that honest, evidence-based, and brutally transparent supply chains are the only way to ensure animal protection in products and supply chains that impact or involve animals. By providing evidence from each step of the supply chain we work towards laying bare the entire value chain from the perspective of animal protection and drive change from the inside.
Our first product: tracing and implementing animal protection on leather goods, stored in the Digital iD, the RSiD.
A Digital ID that stores all supply chain information.
All products going through Responsible Systems get a unique digital ID, The RSiD. All evidence-based information is stored and visible to the end-consumer by activating the RSiD.
This is how the RSiD works on leather goods: Responsible Systems collects data on all leather goods sourcing and production processes through a unique Digital identifier called RSiD (Responsible Systems iDentification), collecting information throughout the value chain from before production and after-sales.
Supply Chain Information stored in a leather goods RSiD is the following:
ProductID, LeatherID, ClientID, AnimalID, FarmID, SlaughterhouseID, TanneryID, ProductionID, SalteryID, LeatherFormulaID
Why we need a global MRV system for animal protection
Yearly 70 billion land-living animals are killed for food the 8 billion humans living. 14, 5% of global GHG emissions are linked to the lack of animal welfare we show cattle. We aim to remove factory farming completely by introducing a global solution that economically incentivizes animal welfare, using evidence-based traceability. Where the ethical impact can be seen in all animal-derived or impacted products using RSiD.
Species are going extinct, natural habitats are destroyed to never be recovered. We work to structure data of all the world's animals and make it useful to improve global animal protection.
The 17 Global goals exclude animal welfare as a key to a sustainable planet. We create change and demand the inclusion of animal welfare by proving links between animal welfare and climate change through insights.
Industrial farming is driven by supply and demand and has devastating effects on ethics and the planet.
We aim to introduce the world´s first ethical-driven price mode for farming, that economically benefits animal welfare.
Driving change from the inside
Our first product:
Leather goods traceability
The global market value of leather stands at a staggering 271 billion USD. However, the leather industry, considered a by-product of the meat industry, often neglects the responsibility for traceability. At Responsible Systems, we perceive the market differently.
As pioneers in the field, our first product focuses on traceability for leather goods from the perspective of animal protection. Recognizing the significance of incorporating traceability linked to animal protection within the agriculture industry, we take pride in being the first company to ensure 100% traceability of leather goods by a reverse-design value chain structure and evidence-based animal protection traceability.
The Responsible Systems platform provides
Value Chain Interconnectivity
By working with an interconnected mindset inside and outside the value chains, better sourcing can be made
Digital circularity & Ownership
The platform ensures circularity and authentification in each product using the Digital RSiD (Responsible Systems Identification)
At its core, Responsible Systems supports on-demand production by a collaborative value chain.
Insights and Data Transparency
Data-transparent supply chains are achieved by a collaborative value chain with a top-down and bottom-up approach.
Built from the perspective of animal traceability to ensure animal protection in each step in the value chain.
The entire value chain from A-Z is traceable and constructed to support product traceability and provenance tracking.
Product Transparency & Traceability
Responsible Systems helps you create unique Digital RSiDs being a unique ID per product throughout the design and production process, ensuring full product traceability and transparency through the value chain.
Facts on why improved animal welfare is key
73 % of global deforestation
73 % of global deforestation is driven by farming livestock. Causing natural habitats to disappear and species to be extinct.
50% of global land area
Human livestock use 50% of global liveble land area: more GHG emissions than the automotive industry. Cities take up 1%.
Unethical animal supply chains create 14,5% of global GHG emissions. By improving global animal protection our goal is to cut the industrial farming industry in half. Besides the clear ethical aspect, it would lower global GHG emissions by 8 %.
14,5 % of global GHG emission
All modern pandemics have been zoonoses: diseases jumping from non-humans to humans.
We’d love to hear from your organization to help improve and provide animal protection insights and traceability in your value chains.
