As an engineer, you have more sustainability leverage than you realise. Learn how you can capitalise on this when developing product and production systems.
This webinar is designed for those that have already understood the need for sustainability but are eager to know how to maximise product, economic, environmental and social sustainability.
Engineers and engineering managers have high levels of influence in building the business case for improved sustainable product design, development and manufacturing. End consumers, businesses in a supply chain and investors are becoming increasingly more demanding that the products and services they use have been developed and produced on a sustainable basis.
Products are produced and consumed in systems. These ‘systems’ in the past were often regarded as linear; namely design, produced, finite-use and dispose. Today, circular systems which rethink how product resources are used and reused are offering new business opportunities. The measurement of CO2e is, however, extremely complex and one that will require new thinking.
This webinar and subsequent course(s) focus on helping engineers and their organisations to understand how to assess and quantify sustainability. This includes the respective supply chains, product use and end of life strategies that go far beyond just “going green”. Sustainable New Product Introduction (NPI) and LEAN approaches are necessary for product development, life extension and renewability.
Who should attend?
Senior business leaders, project leaders, in-company policy makers and engineers who want to have a broader and deeper insight into sustainable product design and manufacturing thinking.
How will I benefit?
After attending this webinar, you will be able to:
- Understand why product/production system thinking is required
- Implement some simple best practices for sustainability
- Better engage with CO2e units of measure
