Introduction to Design for Sustainability Webinar

  • Share:
Name: Introduction to Design for Sustainability Webinar
Date: October 13, 2021
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Most of us think of things like composting, recycling, and reducing fuel consumption when it comes to sustainability - but how can sustainability be translated into everyday business decisions such as in product and process design? Have you ever wondered how to tell if something is truly "more sustainable"? How might we make sense of this question?

During this one-hour free webinar - hosted by Office Evolution and conducted by TrueNorth Collective - we will go through the basics of Design for Sustainability, highlighting several case studies that exemplify how to think about this concept. We all make decisions in our personal and professional lives that "design" in environmental impacts and we want to show you a lens into using data and creativity to come up with more sustainable design decisions. We hope you leave with an understanding of how sustainability plays a role in everyday decision making and examples of best practice for how this is being done today.


Office Evolution Madison is a place for Dreamers, Risk-Takers, and Doers to create in a workspace close to home that is affordable, safe, and inspired. Located just off W Beltline Frontage Road, across the street from the University of Wisconsin Madison Arboretum. Amazing restaurants, retail, and services can be found up and down the Beltline. The building is also within a 15-minute drive of Downtown Madison and within a 5-10 minute drive of numerous golf clubs, parks, the West Towne Mall, and Prairie Town Center. As an added bonus, our second floor location in the Landmark Oaks building offers phenomenal views of Madison year round.

TrueNorth is an environmental sustainability consulting firm and was founded with the vision of accelerating the adoption of sustainability within organizations. The overarching approach used by TrueNorth is Design for Sustainability, Design for Sustainability is how we bring together data and innovation in a systematic manner as a way of humanizing what can otherwise be an overwhelming difficult topic: “improving the design of the man-made world”. The benefit of Design for Sustainability embedded within an organization’s core design processes must be without compromise, measured using the same criteria as other business decisions. This is crucial to adoption as a clear business value-add. At TrueNorth, we work with partners to make sure that sustainability can be part of how business is done and is not something to be considered as “extra”.
