Sustainable manufacturing at the edge

In the wake of landmark climate event, COP26, manufacturers are striving to align their activities with the global net zero targets. But the sector has a long way to go. It currently produces more than 16 gigatons of carbon dioxide (CO2) each year.

Leveraging Technology for Developing the Circular Economy

Circular economy practices that prevent goods from going to landfills - by encouraging reuse or recycling - can help. However, these practices aren't always easy to implement. Brands are experimenting with Industry 4.0 technology that may streamline the circular approach.

New Solutions for Materials Manufacturing Reduce Environmental Impact in Construction

While zero-emissions equipment and waste reduction strategies are crucial, sustainability is complex, involving far more factors than construction work itself. The manufacturers that produce building materials must also improve for the industry to become truly sustainable.

How to Identify & Avoid Greenwashing in Manufacturing

This concept of raking in the financial benefits of "being green" without really making an effort to become more sustainable as a company is known as greenwashing.

Minimizing Supply Chain Losses From Climate Change

Supply chains and the climate are more intricately linked than many may realize. Just eight global supply chains are responsible for more than 50% of greenhouse gas emissions.

Powering Additive Manufacturing with an Environmental and Social Impact Commitment

Structured ESG and strategic, measurable sustainability programs are unlocking the deep value behind "doing well (profitability) by doing good (sustainability)."

Rethinking material usage - How 3D printing enables dematerialization

3D printing makes it possible to introduce different materials into production that offer a lower embodied energy. In many applications, polymer or composite materials can offer the same strength and durability as metals.

It's time for change - Technology essential to tackle climate change

To pursue a sustainable future, manufacturers need to find options to increase energy efficiency. Industrial robotics is an ideal way to help improve sustainability and minimize the environmental impact of manufacturing activities.

How to Conserve Water in Your Manufacturing Process

There are many specific actions you can take to conserve water during your manufacturing processes, and the first step is finding and fixing unwanted leaks in your equipment and machines.

Using Sustainable Product Configuration to Enable Customer Choice

Traditionally, when we think about the cost of a product, we're thinking mainly in financial terms. But this isn't the only form of cost. Increasingly, a new measure that's taking on more importance for buyers - and regulators - is the carbon footprint cost.

Keys to Biocompatible and Hypoallergenic Manufacturing

The materials approved for use in biomedical implants are limited, but as new alloys and polymers emerge, the chances are high that many of them will prove to be biocompatible as well. These will help to shape the future of biomedical manufacturing as a whole.

Creating Energy Resilience in Your Manufacturing Facility

Achieving energy resilience at a manufacturing facility or elsewhere is a two-part process. First, it requires ensuring you have a reliable power supply. Next, an energy-resilient company must have thorough plans for how to respond if a power failure occurs.

Promoting Sustainability in Plastic Manufacturing

In light of that negative reputation, the plastic manufacturing industry needs to initiate changes to make the entire sector - as well as the product itself - more sustainable. What can we do to promote sustainability in plastic manufacturing?

IDS focuses on sustainability in shipping

IDS is convinced that the changeover to sustainable action is the only right way forward and tries to develop resource-saving solutions together with business partners. After all, relatively "small" changes can make a big difference - for the environment and for the company.

A Sustainability Process That Drives Business Value
