Sustainable Innovation Workshop

Sustainable Innovation Workshop


Workshop Details

Bringing a product from concept to customer is an interdisciplinary process that involves a wide diversity of skills: designers’ creativity, engineers’ pragmatism, operations leaders’ effectiveness, marketers’ insight. So why would you use one-size-fits-all sustainability practices?

We’ve developed a Sustainable Innovation Workshop that provides clarity to where each sustainable innovation tool fits into your job and your company.

We will train you in the tools most useful at each stage of the innovation process. You’ve probably heard of some of these sustainable innovation tools, like carbon footprinting, life cycle assessment, and green marketing.

So if you’re a professional working in a design, technical, operations, strategy, or marketing role, and are interested in—or have been tasked with—infusing more sustainability into your job and career, attend our workshop to gain exposure to these tools of sustainable innovation.

Through this workshop, you’ll develop a complete Sustainable Innovation Toolkit, including:

  • Biomimicry
  • Life Cycle Assessment
  • Green Chemistry
  • Sustainable Operations
  • Industrial Ecology
  • Green Marketing
