Sustainable business in 2011 looks much different than it did just a few years ago. The majority of companies are now adopting rudimentary corporate responsibility stances, like tracking enterprise carbon or reporting on their social investments.
Join DS SolidWorks and Environmental Leader on Wednesday, February 16, 2011 9:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST for a free webinar, Bringing Lifecycle Thinking into Sustainable Design – Best Practices (register here), and hear how leading companies are differentiating themselves through sustainable product and service design.
Industry expert Asheen Phansey, Sustainability Product Manager for DS SolidWorks Corporation and Adjunct Professor of Sustainable Business at Babson College will share the three levels of sustainable design:
1. Optimizing existing product systems
2. Altering existing systems
3. Designing completely new systems
Mr. Phansey will help you make coherent sense of the myriad sustainable design tools out there – from simple scorecarding to comprehensive life cycle assessment (LCA). And he’ll highlight green-marketing examples and trends that demonstrate market adoption of these sustainable design practices.
Get ready to learn how to bring sustainability into the core of your business activities.
