Newsletter: Reasons to be Optimistic – Oct 2022

I’m excited to share the next instalment of things that the team at 42T are optimistic about. In each edition, I focus on business benefits and other subjects that we feel are topical and important. I also include other news that may be of interest.

Sustainability & Net Zero: boosting competitiveness through strategic innovation

Sustainability and net zero are two critical themes that will drive significant innovation in the 21st century for most industries.

In this article, our team discusses how harnessing innovative product design and manufacturing has a whole range of business benefits. We examine why sustainability and net zero aims are good for business. Also, how innovation and clever design can be harnessed to improve production efficiencies.  And how multidisciplinary perspectives and expertise can pay for itself in the long run by a thorough process overview.

We illustrate, with case studies, where we’ve saved our clients money while also improving their sustainability credentials – whether through energy efficiency or minimising plastic packaging.

The world of product development and product manufacturing is facing serious challenges that are complex and do not have easy solutions. 42T is perfectly placed to help companies tackle them by identifying the right ideas and executing them quickly and successfully.
