WIQD is a method used to help companies design and manufacture their products in a way that is more environmentally friendly and sustainable. It focuses on minimizing the impact of products on the environment through a holistic approach that considers the entire life cycle of a product, from production to end-of-life. WIQD can help companies cut costs, improve their brand reputation and contribute to a more sustainable future.
What makes WIQD different from other methods for designing sustainable products is the holistic approach it uses. Unlike some other methods, which focus on specific aspects of a product's life cycle, such as energy consumption or waste reduction, WIQD focuses on minimizing a product's impact on the environment throughout its life cycle. It also emphasizes the importance of collaboration among various stakeholders, such as designers, manufacturers, consumers and policy makers, to find sustainable solutions.
