Cleantech Open is delighted to announce the addition of new national sponsor Sustainable Minds. The Boston-based cloud software and services company operationalizes environmental performance into mainstream product development and manufacturing in an accessible, empowering, and credible way.
"We are very thankful to Terry Swack of Sustainable Minds for believing in the mission of Cleantech Open," said CTO Northeast Regional Director Beth Zonis. "Her generous donation will help the 2018 Cleantech Open startups improve their product design and lead to overall environmental performance. This is an invaluable resource that reinforces a key purpose of the Cleantech Open."
As an in-kind sponsor, Sustainable Minds is offering a free 6-month subscription to its SM Eco-concept + LCA software for all members of the 2018 CTO Cohort. Sustainable Minds® easy-to-use, cloud-delivered Eco-concept + Life Cycle Assessment software makes it possible for manufacturers across the value chain – large and small – to dynamically estimate, evaluate, compare and improve their products' environmental performance by integrating life-cycle thinking and LCA into their product development processes.
Environmental performance as criteria for product design is here to stay. Evaluating, measuring, & reporting on environmental performance has become an ordinary cost of doing business. Sustainable Minds software makes sure to get everyone in your product organization thinking from a life cycle perspective to drive revenue and growth through greener product innovation.
Already, Sustainable Minds has brought value to CTO's accelerator participants, offering "Hands-on Training in Life Cycle Thinking & LCA for Cleantech Entrepreneurs.” The webinar provided an introduction to life cycle thinking and LCA and how to use the software in early stage product development to make informed trade-off decisions that can dramatically reduce impacts and drive innovation — in products, business models and systems.
