Solving the Challenge of: Building an Eco-Sustainable Business Strategy:

A leader in building a sustainable business by developing eco-sustainable products, FEDERMACCHINE's outgoing President, Mr. Giancarlo Losma addresses the business imperative of transitioning your business to become more environmentally sustainable. He presents new technologies and new approaches to developing sustainable products, from the initial stage of design, choice of raw materials and appropriate production systems to product development, its disposal at the end of its life span and the recycling and re-use of the materials used.
