Discovering Strategies And Tools To Educate Non Sustainability Experts On Life Cycle Thinking And Effectively Use It In The Design Process

As climate change, resource and water scarcity concerns increase, relevant stakeholders are pushing companies more than ever before to take responsibility to account for and reduce the impacts of their products. This is not just within a company’s operations, but across the entire life cycle. This not only affects heads of corporate responsibility and sustainability, but individuals across the organization, especially product designers.

When designers already have the challenge of balancing performance and cost, how do you incorporate environmental impact into existing processes when you are doing a design for the environment? As a product designer, how can you use complex tools such as Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to identify key impact areas and make decisions for yourself on the fly in a simple, cost effective manner? Further to that, how can you prioritise your decisions to most effectively reduce your environmental impact?

Leading electronic, consumer goods and industrial companies will answer these questions and more in LCA Sustainable Product Design USA 2010.

Understanding How To Reduce Social & Environmental Impacts Through Product Design In Key Areas Of The Life Cycle

Now the ninth event in our International Sustainability Series, the LCA Sustainable Product Design USA 2010 has evolved to meet the demands of today’s CSR, Environmental Affairs Strategists and for the first time engineering and product design experts as well. Based on feedback from the previous eight events and months of in depth research with multi national companies involved in the consumer goods, electronics and industrial industries, this event aims to present a truly unique approach to addressing companies sustainable product design objectives.

This event will give companies strategies from the pioneers in the field, which they can take away to incorporate life cycle thinking and sustainability into product design, cost effectively. At the same time it will provide practical experiences on how leading companies have used product design to effectively reduce impacts in key areas of the life cycle.

This two day summit offers a diverse, yet focused perspective for companies across multiple sectors:

  • Plenary sessions offering fresh perspectives to all companies
  • Break out sessions split by sector:
    • Electronic Goods
    • Consumer Goods
    • Industrial
  • Round table discussions to create industry collaboration

Presenting Practical Applications & Case Studies On Integrating Life Cycle Thinking Into New Product Development & Design Process:

  • Finding Out The Business Case For Creating Greener Products And The Triple Bottom Line Benefits That Arise From This
  • Learning How To Simplify And Communicate The Complexities Of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) To Non LCA Experts
  • Discovering Tools, Guidelines And Strategies To Integrate Life Cycle Thinking Into The Design Process
  • Implementing LCA In A Cost Effective Manner By Screening Products And Understanding The Goal Behind Doing The LCA
  • Assessing Key Areas Of The Product Life Cycle And Practical Ways To Improve Product Design In That Area
