Sustainable Design Thinking Workshop
Brief About The Program
What is Sustainable Product Design?
Sustainable product design for a product manufacturer involves the intentional and holistic consideration of environmental and social factors throughout the product’s development, production, use, and end-of-life phases. It encompasses strategies and practices aimed at reducing the product’s carbon footprint, conserving resources, minimizing waste, and ensuring ethical and responsible sourcing of materials. Sustainable IT product design also strives to meet the performance and functionality expectations of customers while considering the long-term impact on ecosystems and communities.
Why Sustainable Product Design?
As per Capgemini Research Institute report, Rethink: Why sustainable product design is the need of the hour –
“We found that organizations that focus on sustainable product design not only stand to gain from improved compliance, reduced emissions, and reduced resource scarcity concerns, but can also reap benefits such as increased revenue growth and improved relationships with customers and employees. Unfortunately, sustainability is yet to be at the core of product design processes at most organizations”.
Sustainable design is not just a choice; it’s a necessity in today’s world. It addresses pressing environmental and social issues, aligns with consumer expectations, and can lead to economic benefits for businesses. By prioritizing sustainability, product designers can play a crucial role in shaping a more sustainable and responsible future.
