Matterport is a leading spatial data company focused on digitalising and indexing the built world. Their all-in-one 3D data platform enables anyone to turn a space into an accurate and immersive digital twin which can be used to design, build, operate, promote, and understand any space.

The opportunity for Matterport

By capturing digital twins of buildings, Matterport's products have enabled digitalization across several sectors, including real estate and construction. The Matterport team wanted to know exactly what their impact on the environment was – across their operations, supply chain and the use of their products.

The first step was to get a full understanding of the emissions associated with their value chain –  a full Scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon footprint. With a global supply chain, and diverse uses of its products, Matterport needed a platform that could:

• Accurately map its supply chain
• Streamline the data collection
• Produce a carbon footprint, based on high quality data and discernible to specific products
• Enable footprint analysis, down to the component level of products

As a second step, Matterport needed a sophisticated tool, and expertise, to build a model which enabled it to compare different emissions savings across different use cases (i.e. Scope 4 emissions).

Minimum’s solution

Minimum mapped out Matterport’s organisation and supply chain, creating a digital twin of its carbon producing activities and suppliers. For Matterport’s flagship product – the Pro 2 – Minimum broke down the components into their specific materials, and paired this with best-in-class emission factors.

Following the value chain emissions analysis, Minimum also used its modelling expertise to develop avoided emissions scenarios for the use and creation of Matterport’s digital twins.

As a result, Matterport gained: 

• Complete oversight and ownership of Scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon footprint
• A highly granular footprint that enabled Matterport to take decisive action on its hotspots
• Product-level emissions data, down to the specific components. 100% of inputs and materials used were covered by weight-based calculations.
• A Scope 4 emissions model that shows emissions savings for different use cases. This gave Matterport a complete picture of the carbon emission savings associated with digital twins.

Why Matterport chose Minimum

As more companies recognise the climate crisis and start setting ambitious Net Zero targets, the challenges of accurately and efficiently calculating a carbon footprint are increasingly apparent. High-level carbon footprint data isn’t enough to enable effective action, and companies like Matterport need solutions that offer granular insights in order to take decisive environmental action.

Minimum’s Emissions Data Platform allows organisations to automate these processes, enabling them to create more accurate baseline carbon footprints, with deep insight into their own operations, their supply chain, or specific products.
