HowGood’s impact assessments are updated on an ongoing, iterative basis, making Latis the leading-edge tool for food product sustainability. Companies that have access to supplier-specific data such as sourcing locations can increase the granularity of their impact assessments by integrating it into Latis when available, over time. Companies that do not yet have access to supplier-specific data can draw on HowGood’s extensive food product sustainability database and heuristic research methodology to gain unparalleled insight into product sustainability.
The Data Health Indicators feature allows you to assess the overall quality of your product data in Latis, with regards to sourcing locations, ingredient inclusion percentages and date last modified. You can more easily discern which of your products’ impact scores are modeled using your company’s exact data points, compared to those that are calculated using HowGood’s default assumptions.
