Abstract:


The current development of global economies and societies
is regarded as being highly unsustainable. This paper
analyses the current situation. Instead of simplistic metrics
that take only snapshots of the life-cycle of a product
into consideration, an approach is introduced that covers
the whole supply chain. The core idea is that end-to-end
transparency, specific data models, a process architecture,
modern data management and analysis techniques are the
key to make informed decisions, optimisations and to execute
international policies. The particular role of ICT in
such a future economy is discussed.
