The value of lightweight
Major global challenges are driving the need for lighter products. Our world's increasing population needs to share dwindling finite resources, so we must together agree to take powerful environmental actions. Developing products using a life-cycle perspective is a natural way to reduce demands on our resources and increase energy effectiveness.
In the transport industry, deadlines are fast approaching for taking action on tough environmental requirements. As a result, companies must rapidly develop lighter products to remain a viable market player. Lightweighting requirements are also tightening, for example in the case of drivelines for electric cars.
