This requires solutions and processes to enable the right decisions, from material sourcing to human practices and behavior changes: a shift from generation to regeneration.
Design is definitively a powerful means for sustainability.
From sourcing material to fostering circular design in usage of goods and services.
From assembly to disassembly, recycling and reuse.
From generative design to simulation in conception, both leading to reduction in the quantity of materials used.
From creating a Virtual Twin for any product or service to simulating the holistic experience before development.
Multiple frameworks have been developed for sustainability considerations to be part of the design and innovation process.
Dassault Systèmes offers a Life Cycle Assessment solution. LCA is a detailed analysis that gives you the information you need to make the most environmentally friendly decisions throughout product design.
The analysis looks at a product’s entire life, which encompasses ore extraction, material production, manufacturing, product use, end-of-life disposal, and all of the transportation that occurs between these stages.
