Product lifespan and durability

The linear production model (extract, produce, consume, discard), which has largely predominated since the industrial revolution, is not viable on the long term. Its ecological impact – resource use, greenhouse gas emissions, pollution, increasing scarcity of raw materials – is extremely severe. Therefore, extending the lifespan of the products that we make and consume can be an interesting avenue to reduce the environmental impact of a company’s value chain.

A few ideas and questions:

  • Switching from planned obsolescence to guaranteed durability: ensure necessary quality standards throughout the manufacturing process to allow the products sold by your organisation to achieve the highest quality and longest lifespan possible.
  • What measures are currently in place to ensure after-sales support for your product: maintenance, repairs, educating users, etc.?
