Achieve low-carbon production and reduce pollution and energy consumption by implementing sustainable solutions throughout your operations and your supply chain.
The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) define sustainable production as the practice of doing more and better with less. It also means thinking about resources management and the whole lifecycle of the product, from more environmentally friendly raw materials to eco-design to its recyclability. This is a huge opportunity to re-invent manufacturing for a sustainable economy.
To that end, sustainable production is about reducing the negative externalities of the production process in terms of energy consumption and waste materials. Therefore, rapidly adapting manufacturing and distribution for greener and more reusable products made of sustainable materials is critical. All this allows companies to stay ahead of changing regulations, cater to the increasingly sustainability-focused desires of modern consumers, and move towards realizing their zero carbon goals.
While creating eco-design products and adopting more sustainable production processes can yield many benefits, achieving this transition can be a challenge. Sustainable product development processes can be held up by organizational siloes, research and development bottlenecks, or issues along operations and the supply chain.
By making production processes agile, flexible, and transparent, organizations can more effectively design and launch eco-design products, improve operational efficiencies and gain greater visibility over the sustainability of their value chains.
Better materials: Improved research and development practices can lead to the utilization of more sustainable polymers and other greener materials in products.
Supply chain transparency: Knowing their supply chain in depth means businesses can take timely and effective actions on managing product flow and integrate circular economy practices.
Waste reduction: Improved design and lean manufacturing processes allow businesses to avoid waste, both in terms of energy and materials, as well in potential defective runs.
