COPENHAGEN, Denmark – April 25, 2023 – Configit, the global leader in Configuration Lifecycle Management (CLM) solutions, published an article in the management journal Harvard Business Manager, titled: “Sustainability and Circular Economy with Customer-specific Product Variants”.

The article published in cooperation with Ernst & Young was placed in the German licensed edition of the Harvard Business Review (HBR), Harvard Business Manager (HBM), as part of a journal special under the cover story from Ernst & Young, “Say goodbye to Linear Economy – how to make the transition to Circular Economy a success.”

The article carves out why and how Configuration Lifecycle Management (CLM) solutions can help global industrial manufacturing companies with highly complex products facilitate the transition to a circular economy and more sustainable production. CLM provides companies with a holistic data model that is 100% valid and used throughout the organization to:

  • Ensure compliance with circular economy principles already in the design phase, optimizing the use of resources across all domains, including future reuse or recycling.
  • Guide customers towards sustainable decisions through transparency in the configurator regarding price, performance, and sustainability (“Green Configuration“).
