Nolan Pike - Senior Advisor at Electrolux Group

About the lecture

Sustainability and engineering are closely and inseparably intertwined as engineers play a critical role in achieving sustainable development.

Sustainability is a key driver to solve, delight, and with consumers AND engineers, who can be our champions, deliver on designs, development and implementation of technologies and systems that reduce our impact on the environment while meeting societal needs.

Not only do successful innovations solve pain points and enable better lives, but they should also be more sustainable and protect our environment.  Winning enterprises have found that when you develop products to improve our everyday lives: the products meet a market demand for sustainability, sustainable technologies usually deliver better results, and sustainable products deliver incredible savings over the life of the products.
