sustainable products and services

Re-think product design for a sustainable growth.

To significantly reduce environmental emissions, companies must embrace disruption and revolutionize product design. The levers towards sustainability performance can be found along the entire value chain targeting material and energy efficiency, low impact materials as well as the application of circularity principles closing material loops. In the aera of resource scarcity the latter one not only reduces the environmental impact of products, but also strengthen business and resilience.

Product design towards sustainability requires the adoption of innovative design processes and tools, automating the collection and utilization of product lifecycle data, and leveraging scalable, sustainable technologies.

Our end-to-end approach helps companies integrate sustainability as a key driver in their product design processes and see positive impacts on their environmental performance, but also on business growth – all at speed and scale.

“Transitioning to sustainability-driven design and manufacturing of products can seem like a long, expensive and hence unfavorable undertaking. But implementing the right measures can help business to benefit in the long run.”

Dorothea Pohlmann, Business Lead – Sustainable products and services

Clément Chenut, Circular Economy Expert, Group Sustainability Accelerator, Capgemini Invent, highlights an ocean of opportunities for OEMs in the circular economy. So far, most sustainability efforts have focused on the upstream end of the value chain: the provisioning of raw materials and battery production. But Clément is excited about untapped potential between end of use and recycling for vehicles.
