Material Intelligence for Sustainable Automotive Design Part 1:

Material Intelligence for Sustainable Automotive Design and Engineering

Implementing a strategy for sustainable automotive design starts early in the design phase.  It is estimated 80% of all product-related environmental impacts are decided at concept phase. Therefore, automotive suppliers and OEMs should utilize technology solutions to increase visibility, transparency and traceability when selecting and sourcing more sustainable materials. Selecting the right material has financial, logistical and sustainability impacts throughout the vehicle; ranging from its CO2 footprint across various stages of lifecycle, to lightweighting components for minimizing in-use energy consumption.
