Premium Green Product Portfolio
Ingersoll Rand has made a commitment to grow revenue from products and services that help our customers meet their environmental goals. The Ingersoll Rand Green Portfolio is a set of products and services that exemplify world class environmental design. The Green Portfolio is defined by a rigorous and holistic set of criteria that consider energy efficiency, resource efficiency and reduced emissions over the lifecycle phases that are most relevant to the customer. To be included in the portfolio a product or service must demonstrate a tangible customer benefit and a significant environmental benefit.
Product Level Sustainability Index
We created a product level sustainability index to help new product development teams understand how their design and product stacks up against the "perfect" sustainable design. This tool uses the same index categories and criteria as the green product definitions. The products are scored by the team members at each new product development phase in our phase-gate process. The team assesses their product against the competition at the requirements, design, prototype, scale-up and product launch checkpoints. This is not a go/no-go decision, but rather a way to inform the teams how they can be more sustainable for this product and future products, how they stack up against the competition and to develop a baseline to identify gaps and opportunities related to sustainability.
