Welcome to Four Winds Research!
Four Winds Research, LLC was established in response to the growing need for timely, independent, research-based information and insight on sustainability as it applies to product design and manufacturing. Respecting the native American belief that achieving balance and harmony among the four directions is essential, Four Winds Research was founded on the basis that a balanced view – one that seeks to support a profitable, yet also a sustainable approach to product design and manufacturing -- is critical for manufacturers today.
Our mission is to examine sustainability across the product lifecycle and throughout the supply chain; to understand the sustainability issues, challenges and opportunities specific to key industry sectors, including: automotive, aerospace, industrial equipment, high tech electronics, and consumer products; and ultimately, to report on how companies are employing both existing technologies and emerging sustainability-focused tools, technologies and sustainable design "best practices" to achieve a competitive advantage.
