Designing sustainable products and manufacturing processes

For Denmark to become climate-neutral by 2050, we must make better use of the earth's resources than we do today. One way of achieving this is through a circular economy, in which materials and products remain on the market while retaining the greatest possible value for the longest possible time. This requires us to rethink how we design products and manufacturing processes.

The crucial role of design in the circular economy

As much as 80% of a product's environmental impact is determined in its design phase. For this reason, it is essential to start thinking about sustainability and circular economics early on in the development process for products and manufacturing processes. Areas to consider in this regard include material selection, component assembly, and product compositions that make it possible to repair them, replace parts, and extend their lifetimes. Circular economy must also be considered when evaluating production methods and resources in manufacturing processes.
