Digital Sustainability: Applying Sustainability Strategies to Borderless Design
  • Su Yi Su Yi IBM UX Consultant

    I am currently an iX Experience Design consultant at IBM. I have been engaged in user experience design for 10 years, focusing on design thinking, scenario experience, and helping teams guide decisions based on user needs, user research, and user behavior data. In automobile, manufacturing, agriculture, finance and other industries, I help enterprise-level customers find and solve problems, and drive enterprise transformation and product innovation through construction, thinking and improvement.

    Design Philosophy: View each requirement as an opportunity to re-evaluate, improve, and strengthen the current design system. Through the process of building, thinking, and improving, design experiences that truly reach the human heart.

Content Introduction

What does charging your phone have to do with hurricanes?
We all need to charge our phones two or three times a day, yet the energy needed to do so can be generated by environmentally damaging processes that accelerate global warming, increase pollution and the frequency of hurricane damage around the world. When building a product or creating an experience, we often forget to consider its environmental and social impact. For the sake of immediate user satisfaction and short-term business value, these effects are ignored, but in the long run it will threaten the survival of the enterprise in the future. They lead to significant increases in costs, multiplies risks, and undermines the trust of customers, suppliers, and stakeholders.

Eighty percent of the environmental impact of a product is locked in the design phase, yet designers are often excluded from the consequences of their design decisions. As creators, we are responsible for our products and their impact on society, even if it seems invisible to our users. As IBM designers, we strive to be a catalyst for a better world. We define sustainability as bringing prosperity to all people, society and the environment now and in the future, always seeking to best meet the needs of our users while also considering the social and environmental impact of these choices. My goal is to make sustainability a part of every design choice we make.

This workshop will share the experience of how IBM Innovation Incubation Center builds sustainable operations teams within the framework of sustainable design thinking, and how this team helps enterprises embark on the journey of sustainable development. Combined with the cases of sustainable agriculture and silver economy, the participants were helped to understand the way of sustainable design thinking and explore the boundaries of scope and capability. Empower yourself and your team with sustainable design thinking framework and methods and apply them to your own industry/field, reshape their impact on the ecosystem, and expand the value boundary and human impact in a sustainable way.
