A global UPS manufacturer
Our client committed to reduce its environmental impact, especially by reducing its direct and indirect greenhouse gas emission during production and by enabling its customer to save energy. To reach its objectives, he wants to initiate a long-term thinking to strengthen its eco-design initiatives.
IAC Partners was mandated to identify the major upcoming technological developments & breakthroughs on the 4 main categories involved in the single-phase UPS lines, and build short-, mid- and long-term design scenarios aiming at minimizing the product’s environmental footprint while maintaining their competitiveness.
IAC conducted a 3-step approach to build the roadmap:
IAC proposed a roadmap over the next 10 years enabling the reduction of CO2 footprint by:
-70% on extraction / manufacturing / end of Life
-80% on distribution
-4% on use and maintenance
The proposed design changes also lead to 14% cost reductions on the long-term.
We documented all ideas with detailed calculations of CO2 emissions and cost impacts, enriched with a mid-term action plan outlining the risk, success opportunities, key players and partners to involve in the initiative.
