@rruther2 - That was a good idea! Glad you researched that.

I think one the important take aways from today's conversation with Peter Buca is that sustainability is an added-value in the design process where the value can be clearly and measurably quantified: energy saved, material usage, etc. These translate into cost savings both in the product design and manufacturing process and also into the life cycle of the product in use by the customer (ROI, etc.) It's in the ability to articulate the quantifiable value of sustainability where Parker is leading the way. 

I just researched stewardship and how it relates to sustainability.

Hey, thanks for getting me started. Rodney B. Rutherford

Sustainability is not a dismal science.

Sustainability requires thinking large - it is an opportunity to innovate.

Richard Smalley is the author of the Top 10 Needs concept.  Google "top 10 needs of humanity"

More likely that sustainability will be incorporated into engineering curriculums not as a separate topic but in all programs.

 

Iron

And do you think that Engineering Schools are addressing sustainability as a topic for their students?

One question for Pete - Where can we read more about Parker Hannifin's driving principles: The Top 10 Needs of Humanity?

Peter, great presentation! A question - will there be a Sustainability Engineer career path someday?

Iron

@dalalhm amd @EcoGreenGreg - Thanks for your comments, I agree. This has been a fascinating presentation.

Thanks Peter Buca of Paker Hannifin, for a very insightful discussion on the role that sustainability is playing in the nuts and bolts world of product design and development. To our listeners today, please enter your questions for Pete now.

please enter your questions for Peter now as we'll be transitioning to the chat shortly.

This is Bruce Rayner, the moderator of today's Radio Show. Looking forward to a lively discussion today around the topic of Sustainability in Design.

Hello everyone, I'm delighted to be with you today to talk about Sustainability and value.

This is an excellent initiative to get people to understand sustainability and to get them on board to incorporate ideas in to thier work.

Thanks
