“Whilst most business leaders recognize the opportunities in sustainability and publicly declare their support for it, actual implementation in the business world has proved difficult to achieve. One of the reasons for this lack of progress lies in the lack of easy to use tools that can help companies implement sustainable business practices into daily operations.
This talk is about processes and design tools, such as the Impact Canvas, that enable companies and entrepreneurs to build more sustainable and innovative products and business models. The talk shows how the adaptation of comparably simple methods can make a significant difference in the corporate design process and help designers consider sustainability aspects when they are most important to consider: at the very start of the innovation process.
