Professor Christine White, Deputy Dean of DMU, said: “We have a wealth of sustainable design industry experience here at DMU which we are keen to share with companies.
“All companies are facing huge challenges with net zero emissions targets, supply chains, the need to minimise extraction of raw materials and reducing the amount of materials sent to landfill.”
“Responsible sourcing, adoptions of new technologies and how to produce fibres from materials that do not damage the planet, greenwashing, new product design – we’re here to help whether through innovation projects, consultancy or working with our students. Our Sustainable Design event at Sustainability ROX on the 5th March 2023, will present ideas, solutions and practical steps to help all types of businesses move forward for green growth.”
