Sustainable Products: The Future of Selling, Regulations, and Reporting in Manufacturing
Joint webinar by iPoint and Tacton
Special guest: Stephanie A. Smith, Director Global Product Sustainability, Xylem
Discover how leading manufacturers are driving the adoption of environmentally sound products by combining life cycle assessments and configuration solutions
According to a recent Tacton survey, 63% of manufacturers think sustainability is very or extremely important for their goals for 2023 and beyond. Strategic agendas based on sustainability are being driven by customer demands for transparency around the products they purchase.
With regulations and transparency requests from customers manufacturers need to find new and innovative ways to deal with these challenges. Measuring and managing sustainability impact will be critical for the long-term success of manufacturers. Sustainability managers and digitalization competencies at manufacturers create business value when cooperating on climate and other sustainability challenges.
