Enabling quick and relevant eco-design
Designing better from the start is a key aspect of reducing the world’s consumption. However, product footprinting can be very technical, requiring specific life cycle assessment (LCA) skills that most product design teams don’t have. The key is to put the sustainable guidance in the hands of the people that can make the difference – the product designers – and make this guidance simple to follow, quick, and scalable.
At Anthesis, we have developed the Green Design Tool specifically with this vision in mind. Anthesis’ Green Design Tool is customizable to your requirements, can evolve with your team’s needs, and is quick and easy to use.
Who benefits from the Green Design tool?
- Product design and R&D teams, to guide where to innovate for greatest impact
- Procurement teams, to guide supply chain improvements
- Account teams, to provide a compelling sales differentiator
An LCA tool to discover lower impact product design
The Green Design Tool provides a flexible platform for sustainable innovation. The tool employs a modular approach, building up the breadth and depth of assessment to suit a variety of business needs.
The tool can incorporate a wide range of quantitative and qualitative impact metrics, allowing you to develop a scoring system aligned to your strategy. Some typical impact metrics include carbon emissions, water use, circularity credentials, chemical use, and natural sourcing.
Anthesis brings a wealth of knowledge and data related to LCA assessment. We pull on a wide range of industry leading data sources, supplemented with data sourced directly from your supply chain. This data-driven approach provides an enhanced level of accuracy.
Once built, we work with you to score up your products on mass, providing a clear baseline to focus your impact reduction strategy on.
