The new solution provides companies with better visibility into material flows in their processes and helps them track and comply with rapidly changing regulations, especially on product packaging and plastics. As companies increasingly develop sustainable products, managing materials and regulatory data becomes one of the most complex challenges.

"The circular economy is based on three principles that are influenced by design: Prevent waste and pollution, reuse products and materials over and over again, and regenerate natural systems. Digital solutions play an important role on the path to the circular economy," said Andrew Morlet, CEO of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. "It allows companies to incorporate circular economy practices into all of their operations - from product design that takes waste prevention into account from the start to tracking the lifecycle of materials used."
