We help companies frame environmental responsibility as a business opportunity. Minimizing their environmental impact, while increasing the economic value of products and services is our goal.
Eco-innovation enables sustainable strategies to emerge, as a result of cross-functional team creativity and increased subject matter know-how. Exploring the lifecycle of products is naturally conductive to holistic thinking, along the value chain and beyond. Not only does the process yield smart solutions, but it also seeds the cultural change and competencies needed to turn a strategy into reality.
We offer trainings and project based services, using proven methodologies based on LCA. Qualitative or streamlined, the tools are accessible and meaningful for non experts.
The key to creating sustainable value lies in a sound understanding of environmental and business priorities, specific to each company. Only on this basis, can systematic innovation be effective.
We also apply Design for Sustainability and provide expertise in renewable energies, green technologies and advanced materials.
OpenGreen is a methodological tool that facilitates eco-innovation. Easy to integrate into a company´s existing product development and operational processes, OpenGreen enables teams to develop competitive, economical and environmentally friendly solutions.
