University of Teesside sust-tees are launching two new sustainable design and technology degree programmes and are therefore running a broader series of lectures in that field 26-30th January 2009.
Rob Holdway from Giraffe will be holding a lecture on Design for a One Planet Economy. Giraffe’s approach to projects combines analytical thinking with science with the creative ability to synthesise between different industries, techniques and cultures. The majority of our work involves establishing a detailed lifecycle analysis understanding of the environmental impact of an organisation, an operation, or specifically a product or pack. This underpins Giraffe’s work in undertaking carbon-led eco redesign projects with opportunities for lifecycle reduction. We realise that, from a business perspective, there is little point making environmentally sensitive products and services if they are not commercially viable.
