The paper authors write “Awareness of sustainability is growing. Today’s consumers are often making an extra effort to purchase products whose suppliers produce them in an environmentally friendly way, recycle, and use natural ingredients. This represents a fundamental societal shift that puts pressure on every company.”

Answers to the following questions and more can be found in the white paper.

  • How can companies and their products become more sustainable?
  • How can they manage their entry into the circular economy?
  • What digital tools are already available to help with this initiative?

Of particular interest is the discussion on the role of PLM to provide traceability of product data and the use of digital twin models to connect the digital thread.

The paper includes an insightful interview with German automotive supplier Grammer Ag on how they will use PLM data management capabilities to meet their sustainability goals.
