Webcast Replay: Implementing Greener Product Innovation – SM Getting Started Programs

By Sustainable Minds on February 26, 2013

Our weekly webcasts are designed to provide an overview of Sustainable Minds’ cloud software and services to product manufacturers and educators who are new to Sustainable Minds, as well as those interested in introducing Sustainable Minds to colleagues. If you are unable to attend the live webcast, you and your colleagues can watch now, or at your convenience.

Global manufacturers agree: The biggest sustainability driver in 2013 is innovation.
The combination of consumer demand, potential financial savings, constrained resources, regulatory requirements, long term business viability and company values have already moved efforts towards make greener products from informal investigation to corporate initiative.

This webcast includes:

  1. Short business cases about product teams that are using Sustainable Minds to drive product innovation in R&D and concept development, benchmark products, analyze feasibility of logistics & reuse and more.
