Reinventing Products: How to Influence Designers

Wednesday November 2, 3:00 pm-4:00 pm

Up to 80 percent of a product’s sustainability impacts are determined at the design stage—which makes design a crucial initial step in achieving sustainability goals. How can companies reinvent their product development and innovation processes to incorporate sustainability and circular economy principles? How can companies create ownership for sustainability and circularity among their design teams? We'll explore challenges and share leading practices to help more companies integrate sustainable design into new products.
