Welcome to our webinar Designing for Sustainability: Conscious Material Selection and Use!

Across all industries, there is an increasing demand for new, more optimised solutions for sustainable product design. Managing the life cycle of products is essential for a circular economy and reduced emissions. With this webinar we wish to spread awareness and discuss how to select, test and use materials in a conscious way. 

We start off by having Rickard Jansson from Svensk Plaståtervinning, who is also a member in Delegationen för Cirkulär Ekonomi‘s work group on circular design strategies. Rickard will give us insights about their work and how businesses can design products that facilitate a shift to a circular economy.

Joining us will be three IMA Network members – Element Materials Technology, Re-board Technology and Wematter – all known for their engagement with sustainability. The trio will showcase their good practices and how they contribute to a more sustainable use of materials, as well as share their future plans and endeavors.

Improving sustainable design methods and tools can require substantial investment and support, that’s why we have invited BioInnovation to share some insights about available funding and collaboration opportunities. Join us for this exciting webinar on February 16th!
