Many smallholders suffer from low yields and lack access to technological and financial resources. Concurrently, consumers such as tyre companies have established sustainability policies compelling stakeholders to meet their criteria. This is where HeveaConnect comes in.
Our focus is to empower the agency network with a new incentive structure to ensure a sustainable supply chain. By introducing agronomical standards for natural rubber cultivation and identifying the raw material source, we can work with farmers to produce sustainable natural rubber. We can also help farmers access banking facilities so that they can manage their small businesses better.
HeveaGrow aims to educate farmers about rubber cultivation methods to improve yield and ultimately, revenue. All whilst meeting global sustainability standards.
HeveaTrace provides visibility on the origin of raw materials to ensure global sustainability standards are met.
HeveaConnect is an efficient platform for price discovery where producers will be able to offer prices with a click of a button. Gone are the days of price negotiation over the phone, text and email. Digitised trades will give management better oversight, with historical data readily available on a bespoke dashboard where data analytics are applied.
Producers joining HeveaConnect will enjoy the benefit of their factories being certified by TÜV SÜD, ensuring the product is compliant to the HeveaPro industrial standards. TÜV SÜD is an independent quality, safety and sustainability solutions provider that specialises in safety, testing and certification at every stage of the automobile value chain.
When you implement HeveaPro, you can guarantee to your customers that your product is produced in a socially and environmentally responsible way.
EXTERNAL CERTIFICATION – TÜV SÜD
All HeveaPro factories are annually audited by TÜV SÜD, an internationally-recognised external certification body.
LOGISTICS / WAREHOUSING
HeveaConnect is a digital marketplace that not only offers consumers and producers the ability to transact, but also acts as a one-stop shop for all participants in the natural rubber supply chain. By integrating other service providers such as logistics and warehousing, we aim to provide easy, central access for all stakeholders and service providers.
Lending banks, insurers and trade financing play a vital role in the trade and commodity finance space. But a key risk they face is the visibility of the supply chain in any industry.
With HeveaConnect, that risk is minimised as each stage of the supply chain is visible to any service provider connected to us. We are also able to provide smallholders with access to financial networks via a secure platform.
CIVIL SOCIETIES & ASSOCIATIONS
Non-profit organisations and industry associations act as watchdogs for issues such as deforestation, human rights violations, industry intelligence and education. HeveaConnect hopes to partner with these organisations to certify and audit various areas of the supply chain where appropriate. Ultimately, we aim to drive excellence in each segment of the supply chain through the establishment of our Industrial Standards.
An efficient digital platform allows for cost savings through the reduction of frictional administrative costs and errors. All natural rubber transacted on HevaConnect are audited using our proprietary industrial standard, HeveaPro. HeveaPro is audited by TÜV SÜD, the leading automotive testing, inspection and certification body. Consumers can purchase a premium quality product with confidence knowing that proper audits are in place. Full transparency is seen throughout the supply chain benefitting all natural rubber stakeholders on the platform.
As a platform serving the natural rubber industry, HeveaConnect plays an important role in setting industrial standards. By joining HeveaConnect, producers and consumers can contribute their knowledge and expertise towards the development of various standards – shaping the future of the industry. HeveaConnect’s structure and governance framework includes inputs from key stakeholders. We work with strategic partners such as civil societies and associations that will aid in the development of the industrial standards.
