Business Week Innovation Columnist and Materials Scientist Andrew Dent will discuss why intelligent and cost-effective sustainability has become increasingly important, particularly as consumers grow weary of being bombarded with “green” solutions of questionable validity. He'll provide some guiding examples of how to approach a new 'good design' ethos, as well as a look at innovative new materials, the present state of recycled materials, and ways to ensure compliance with current and future bans on certain chemicals, and will feature examples from a wide range of industries, including packaging, sneaker design, medical and consumer products, and electronics and housewares.
