Measurable goals are being designed as part of Stratasys’ 2022 focus areas
At the end of July 2021, AMGTA announced that 8 new organizations joined the trade group to support sustainability in AM among which Stratasys who joined as a founding member alongside Sintavia, ExOne, Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation and QC Laboratories, Inc.
“Stratasys’ Founding Member status is critical to our organization’s mission to advance sustainability in additive manufacturing as we secure a selective group of market and industry experts to represent and advance our work to report on the environmental benefits of additive manufacturing,” said Sherry Handel, Executive Director of the AMGTA. “Our goal is to introduce new lifecycle analysis research projects in additive manufacturing that clearly measure impact and increase the world’s understanding of 3D printing as critical to the global manufacturing industry’s move towards greater sustainability.”
Following its entry into service, the expert in polymer 3D printing solutions reinforces its commitment to accelerate 3D printing with an ESG-focused offering (Environmental, Social and Governance) by establishing its ‘Stratasys Sustainability’ function and appointing Rosa Coblens as Vice President of Sustainability.
The company also identified four U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as the cornerstones of its purpose-driven sustainability efforts. Measurable goals are being designed as part of Stratasys’ 2022 focus areas. They include responsible consumption and production, industry, innovation and infrastructure, climate action as well as quality education.
Stratasys CEO Dr. Yoav Zeif said now is the time for Mindful Manufacturing. “Beyond the global pandemic, climate change is a growing worldwide concern. It is our mission to translate our leadership in 3D printing into mindful business applications for our customers – where less waste is produced, and more value derived from the digital processes that drive our manufacturing solutions. This approach is aimed at assisting our customers in reducing their carbon footprint, with less dependency on mass shipment of inventories and parts, shortening and localizing supply chains across industries such as aerospace, automotive, healthcare and consumer products.”
