Sustainable Packaging: Sustainability Engineering Offering | HCL Technologies



Organizations across sectors are turning toward green technology and sustainability solutions. As green technologies are gaining popularity, eco-friendly solutions that result in economic and social sustainability are the need of the hour.

The increased focus on renewable energy sources, low-carbon products, and circular economy models warrants a clear shift from sustainable operation to sustainable value-chain. In addition to regulatory requirements, interest from investors and consumer affinity for smart and energy-efficient products drives the sustainability transition.

Making the green leap is easier said than done. Due to increased costs, high complexity, and the lack of tailored solutions, it is a challenge for most organizations to take the green leap without a strong ecosystem.

HCL’s Sustaineering portfolio offers end-to-end sustainability solutions and services underpinned by strategic partnerships. It allows HCL to provide services across the value chain right from the product ideation and design phase to end-of-life and sustenance. HCL offers complete customized services across all stages of the transformation journey - from strategizing, building, migrating, and deploying to sustain and support the business.
