Mejora Sostenible

El grupo de Mejora Sostenible desarrolla modelos y herramientas que ayudan a las empresas a contribuir al desarrollo sostenible, potenciando la integración progresiva de la circularidad en todo el modelo empresarial con objetivos de triple impacto: económico, ambiental y social. Estos modelos y herramientas se desarrollan tanto a nivel estratégico como operativo (éste último siguiendo una filosofía Lean basada en datos, Lean-Six Sigma).

Actualmente estamos trabajando en:

  • Desarrollo de metodologías de implantación de la simbiosis industrial para facilitar la adopción de principios de economía circular.

  • Herramientas y técnicas para la implementación del a Economía Circular en PYMEs.

  • Estrategias para el despliegue y la evaluación de una producción sostenible y circular.

  • Telemetría y diagnóstico del consumo del agua en procesos productivos.

  • Proyectos de ciencia de datos en el ámbito de mejora de procesos industriales.

Colaboramos activamente con otros centros universitarios (Harvard University, MIT, IESE Business School, Bentley University, Mid Sweden University, Universidad de Mondragón, Universidad el País Vasco, Universidad de Deusto, Universidad Internacional de Cataluña, Universidad Pontificia Javierana, Universidad de Montevideo, Universidad Panamericana, Universidad de la Sabana. Y también distintos organismos públicos con los que tenemos convenios de trabajo (Diputación de Gipuzkoa, Mancomunidad de San Markos, NaturKlima, …) y estamos en contacto directo con las organizaciones: Clúster de alimentación País Vasco y La Rioja, Aclima, Ihobe, Corporate Excellence-Center for Reputation Leadership…
