2 years ago, Altyor launched Design for tomorrow, an approach that aims to design eco-intelligence for responsible manufacturing. To give substance to this approach, Altyor created the Design for tomorrow index.
As an industrial manufacturer of electronic objects, we engage our customers to take eco-design approaches into account. Therefore, the Design for tomorrow index is a positive approach with 5 levels of progress for assessing the eco-responsibility of products:
Within this approach, 4 major families are taken into account:
- Electronics: analysis of battery consumption, lifetime, firmware updates, etc.
- Mechanics: incorporation of recycled plastic, dismantling, etc.
- Packaging: recycled paper and cardboard, non-essential elements, etc.
- and bonuses: realization of a LCA, another valuable environmental solution of the product, etc.
By rating products, we want to encourage our customers to take this green approach into account when assessing their progress towards eco-responsible excellence.
