But within the pharmaceutical and chemical industry different companies deal in a different way towards environmental changes. Especially the Pharma industry seems to be reluctant towards change and follow the motto “Never change a running system”. Nevertheless, a packaging manufacturer based in Switzerland collaborated with FHNW to find out, whether QR codes on transport packaging are suitable to generate and analyze data for a carbon footprint information system.

This thesis paper aims to identify business requirements and solution objectives to implement a solution based on QR codes addressing the CO2 emission theme. The suitability of QR codes on transport packaging is evaluated by the application of a Design Science Research approach. Therefore, a potential solution with optional components is developed and demonstrated with an artefact. The artefact forms the proof of concept and is the basis to evaluate whether the idea is marketable enough to bring business benefits....
