The project

The CONVERGENCE methodology is the result of a partnership between researchers, academics and companies. A transversal and multidisciplinary work that will have lasted more than three years. It allowed the development of a digital tool called Scenario.


The CONVERGENCE project offers a tool for steering the integration of the environment from product design to company strategy. The methodology designed is based on three main interconnected poles: strategic, tactical and operational.

  • Strategic: rethinking corporate governance in order to integrate environmental and social issues at the heart of the company

  • Tactical: Propose ecodesign approaches adapted to the company's context

  • Operational: Ensure the involvement of designers and the integration of ecodesign strategies into business processes.
