We Accept the Challenge
If you are interested in designing better, smarter products that are functional, cost effective, and have no harmful side effects on human health or the environment then you have come the right place.
At Bayly we like to work with clients who see product sustainability as a key factor in overall design quality and performance.
Many organisations working in the new economy are committed to delivering products and services that have been designed to eliminate environmental impacts. In our experience, 80% of a product’s environmental impacts are already locked in at the design stage, when key decisions are made about materials, production, distribution, operation and end-of-life management.
The most committed and successful organisations want to consider the product v.s. in service substitution / delivery business models that focuses on shifting the mode of consumption from personal ownership of products to the provision of services which provide similar functions. An example of this that you might consider is the case of purchasing a private automobile to subscribing to a carsharing service. Such a system promotes minimal resource use per unit of consumption. Bayly's team works with you to ensure that this is considered in the initial stages of your new product development programs.
We need clients that are prepared to challenge our outputs against the Principles of Sustainable Design that we use throughout our product design programs
Lifecycle Analysis (LCA)
Bayly works with experts at the Centre for Design at RMIT Universtiy of Technology and the Sustainable Packaging Alliance in undertaking LCA programs with its clients on all types of products and packaging.
If LCA is important to your business planning and strategic decisions, talk to us about how we can help you with these activities.
