Our Client & Their Goals
Our Client, a major manufacturer of plastic products, planned to respond to the rapidly growing demand for sustainable products by increasing the sustainability of their own offerings. Such an effort can be a substantial undertaking, sometimes requiring that industrial manufacturers re-think their manufacturing processes from the ground-up. Even though our Client was familiar with the core concepts of sustainability, they lacked a current understanding of technologies—especially those still developing—that could achieve their goals. They also recognised that even after these technologies were identified, they would need expert assistance to evaluate which solutions would be best for them.
Our Client’s goal was to identify specific technologies that they could implement to quickly make their product lines and manufacturing processes more sustainable. They also wanted to determine which game-changing technologies might disrupt their industry over the long-term, and then to develop an effective strategy to respond to these disruptions. They intended to utilise more sustainable feedstocks, improve their material processing technology, and increase the recyclability of their products. Our Client was also planning to partner with key developers of game-changing technologies to co-develop new sustainable solutions in the near future.
