Sustainability aspects in product development

The aim of this strategy is to demonstrate a working procedure on how to integrate sustainability aspects in product development projects based on ABB’s experiences.

Design for Environment The aim of this strategy is to fulfill environmental requirements of a product in the design phase. The strategy is based on an example from the railway industry and it is documented by Industrial Environmental Informatics at Chalmers University of Technology.
Environmental aspects in a Stage-Gate® model for the chemical industry The aim of this strategy is to tackle health, safety and environmental (HSE) issues in product development through inclusion of HSE criteria into a Stage-Gate® model. A Stage-Gate® model similar to the one presented here is being used by Akzo Nobel Surface Chemistry

Marketing

Use of EPD in marketing

The aim of this strategy is to demonstrate how EPD can be used in marketing. The strategy is based on experiences from ABB.

Use of sustainability tools to answer questions from customers

The aim of this strategy from Akzo Nobel is to show how sustainability tools can be used to answer questions about environmental issues and communicate environmental information to customers.

SPI in market communication

The aim of this strategy is to describe how data collection for calculation of Sustainability Performance Indicators (SPI) can be organized and a procedure how one can work on improvement of the SPI and how the SPI can be communicated to stakeholders, based on ABBs experience

Basing environmental arguments on ISO/TS 14048 documented facts The aim of this strategy is to show how the ISO/TS 14048 data documentation format can be used to assure that the environmental arguments used by companies or other organizations are well-founded and supported by accessible, understandable and reviewable documents. The strategy is documented by Industrial Environmental Informatics, Chalmers University of Technology.
Strategy for producing environmental information formats Results from routinely produced environmental assessments like Sustainability reports, LCA-studies, EPDs etc are presented in many different formats in reports, on web-pages, etc. This strategy supplies some core guidelines for which information to include in the format, and what aspects of the information to consider when structuring an environmental information format. The strategy is based on a doctoral thesis at Industrial Environmental Informatics, Chalmers University of Technology.
Strategy for steering environmental work within SCA The aim of this strategy is to show how to work with a company’s environmental policy and create usable indicators in order to be able to steer the environmental work towards the goal of the policy. The strategy is based on experiences from the CPM project IMPRESS , where SCA Personal Care, which is one of the business areas of SCA, took active part.
Strategy for the use of LCA within SCA The aim of this strategy is to give practical advice on how the tool LCA can be an integral part of a company’s environmental work. The strategy is based on experiences from SCA Personal Care, which is one of the business areas of SCA.
