Designed & built for life

Circularity is no longer just an option. Sustainability plays a role in everything we develop, and in multiple aspects. Circular product development is fundamentally about creating products designed and manufactured to last for a long time, made from safe, sustainable materials sourced from recycled resources. It also encompasses the circular customer journey, wherein the product is designed in such a way that users can repair, reuse, and/or pass it on. Moreover, circularity goes beyond the product; the entire supply chain has a role in “closing the loop.”

The invention of plastic has had a significant impact on society, and continues to do so. This brilliant material has endless applications, and life without plastics seems unimaginable. However, there is also a downside to this. Unthoughtful production leads to a significant strain on the environment.

Design Phase Determines 80 Percent

PEZY is closely involved in the theme of Circular Product Design. Did you know that more than 80 percent of a product’s environmental impact is determined in the design phase? We are not only frequently asked about this by our clients, but also we see it as our duty to create products that have a significant impact on people’s lives, but not on the environment.

We have a wealth of knowledge across the various aspects of circular product design. PEZY is, among other things, a co-author of the book “Design for Recycling – Design from Recycling,” created as part of the European PolyCE project. If you want to elevate your product design and development to a more sustainable and circular level, we are here to add value.
