Led by PhD experts, Design Partners’ sustainability team collaborates with the world’s largest and most innovative brands to deliver real change. We challenge conventional approaches in order to arrive at groundbreaking solutions for more sustainable products and services. We understand it can be difficult to know where and how to start on the sustainability journey. So, our goal is to demystify the sustainability design process. We work closely with our clients to build a deep understanding of the key questions and challenges. Our approach is holistic, exposing aspects across the whole product life cycle that carry the greatest burdens. We apply design, strategy, and innovation across all points in the pursuit of positive change. Our team executes cradle-to-cradle thinking to inform our sustainable design approach. This entails capturing data relating to the supply chain, material selection, manufacture, use, and end-of-life activities. We build robust LCA models (Life Cycle Assessment) in alignment with ISO14040. We liaise with client engineering and design teams, sharing information regarding upcoming regulatory changes, and informing circular design decisions. We then translate the findings we uncover together into clear future propositions, products, and service models.
Everyone at Design Partners shares the same goal, to elevate human potential. We seek the changes that can inspire and elevate in the most positive way – for people and for our planet. We’re growing our team and our ambition in the delivery of truly circular and sustainable product offerings. Visit our careers page to see our open vacancies and get in touch to learn more.
