The Sustainable Competitiveness Product Process (CD2Pro) programme assists companies in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in their environmental management projects by mobilising the services of technological experts.

The programme focuses on:

  • Decreasing resource consumption (materials, energy, etc.)
  • Guaranteeing cleanliness at the expected level and/or the recovery of waste
  • Reducing health risks (pollution, noise, etc.)
  • Guaranteeing the performance of a product/equipment (efficiency, safety, cost, environmental impact, etc.)

Piloted by Cetim and funded by the Region, the programme is divided into two levels of support:

  • Short-term support: a free, one-day consultation involving an inventory, transfer of good practices, flash awareness, diagnosis, roadmap to progress
  • Optional long-term support: customised modules with technology experts 80 % financed by the Region to solve technological problems, upgrade production processes, redesign a product or equipment

Case examples

  • Conduct tests to validate clean technology solutions
  • Promote site compliance and anticipate new regulations
  • Achieve savings on overall costs (resources, components, etc.)
  • Optimise the product life cycle (materials, manufacturing, distribution, use, etc.)
