Clean up product design through free online seminar
Product designers and manufacturers are being encouraged to participate in an online Envirowise seminar to obtain practical guidance on ‘cleaner’ product and packaging design. The resource efficiency programme is hosting a live product design web cast on 11 October, allowing companies to access free advice on sustainable design techniques and help them identify potential changes to product specifications which could generate cost savings.The
An interactive product design workshop will demonstrate how to develop sustainable designs that minimise environmental impacts throughout the product life-cycle, using a practical dismantling exercise. There will also be a Q&A forum and a seminar outlining re-design solutions for product packaging, which can be downloaded after the event.
Jenni Rosser, cleaner design specialist for Envirowise, commented: “The webinar is designed to help businesses grasp the environmental and commercial opportunities associated with cleaner design.
“Some companies involved in the manufacture of electrical products may be required to ‘design-in’ efficiency measures throughout the product life-cycle, when the EU’s Energy Using Products (EuP) Directive comes into force. These factors mean that businesses simply cannot afford to ignore the advantages that can be gained through sustainable design.”
