LONDON, UK; May 5, 2022 - U.Solutions, a leading technology company, has announced a new partnership with Originica, a software vendor specializing in resource tracing, with the goal of promoting sustainability in the consumer goods industry. The two companies will expand their focus to broader environmental, social and governance (ESG) challenges in the future.
Together, U.Solutions and Originica will develop innovative solutions to reduce carbon footprint and minimize the environmental impact of consumer goods. One key area of focus for the partnership will be the development of sustainable solutions for climate change and sustainable agriculture, using Originica's resource-tracing software to ensure that all resources are sourced ethically and that production processes are environmentally friendly.
With the powerful combination of U.Solutions’ Sustainability Services, and Originica’ robust data and tracing capabilities, the expanded strategic partnership will address both horizontal and industry-specific sustainability challenges to help drive impact and deliver new value.

“The partnership between U.Solutions and Originica is a win-win situation for both companies and the environment,” said Eugene Rodnyanskiy, chief executive officer, Originica. “It shows that technology and sustainability can go hand in hand. With the right tools and expertise, we can make a positive impact on the environment while also driving innovation and growth in FMCG industry.”

Daniel Morgaluk, chief executive officer, U.Solutions, added, “This partnership between U.Solutions and Originica is an important step towards promoting sustainability in the consumer goods industry. By combining our respective expertise in technology and resource tracing, the two companies hope to create a more sustainable future for all, while providing consumers with environmentally friendly products and services.”

Through the expanded strategic partnership, the companies will collaborate to extend existing capabilities and develop new joint offerings across four areas:

  • Low Carbon Footprint Transition – Joint offerings can be used to track and trace resources throughout the supply chain, from raw materials to finished products. This can help companies identify inefficiencies, reduce carbon footprint, and ensure that resources are sourced responsibly. New solutions will help companies in the transition to a net zero economy by connecting and integrating infrastructure to develop carbon intelligence, and transform customer offers and business models that can support low carbon experiences.
  • Sustainable IT with Microsoft Azure – Organizations are seeking efficient infrastructure along with greater workload flexibility and business agility. New solutions on Microsoft Azure span strategy development and assessment of current IT infrastructure; architecting and piloting solutions; a carbon aware approach to migration; and continuous improvement and business transformation with low carbon cloud as its foundation.
  • ESG Measurement, Analytics and Performance with Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability – Facing increasing regulatory and stakeholder demands, organizations need insights at their fingertips to innovate and embed sustainability into the design of new products and services. Joint solutions will focus on providing sustainability intelligence for value chains by helping to collect, analyze, and report on sustainability data.
