What is sustainable product design and how do we achieve it? How do we align design of new products with outcomes that satisfy stakeholders and achieve the desired results with minimal environmental impact? How can we move forward from this to focus on products that actually do good rather than just do less harm?
Sustainable product design can be achieved when the process starts with identifying the needs of the user, understanding the life-span and impact of the product and all the component parts. As a responsible business we consider all aspects of the impacts of the products we design and we support our commitment by working to the Environmental Standard ISO14001.
At Triteq, we celebrate the increasing commitment of well-known brands, who are embracing the principles of Cradle to Cradle technology. In 2013 PUMA launched two new collections of lifestyle apparel, footwear and accessories, both Cradle to Cradle Certified TM Basic.
Company by company, product by product, the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute is changing the way we make things. Great design is a choice and increasingly leading product designers and manufacturers are using the criteria of the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program for innovation and business success.
When we begin working with you we invite you to accept our offer of complimentary consultancy on how to create your own sustainability strategy. Sustainable practices can help grow a business and enable companies to benefit from reduced costs, streamlined performance and an effective method of minimizing environmental impacts.
With spin-outs and start-ups, we help introduce the opportunities and highlight future potential gains for sustainable design of the product and the business case. This can help with funding applications and attracting investment. Our work has spanned many sectors with an increasing focus on design of medical diagnostic devices within the fields of Design for Need.
