Microsoft's Xbox controller packaging

Published: 17 May 2022
Type: Case study

SPHERE case study

Microsoft currently assesses packaging sustainability against a range of KPIs and packaging goals. In addition to other factors, these measures are part of the design process and used to select final packaging. Sustainability KPIs are typically viewed in silos and prioritization can be challenging as impacts cross several areas. The SPHERE method can ensure that the picture is holistic and balanced to enable the right decisions. Microsoft is looking to further test, refine and integrate the SPHERE framework as part of its packaging development process.

This case study is just a start for Microsoft. Further projects and packaging options will be run through the SPHERE framework and the results assessed. The team is also considering how current tools can integrate this framework as well as the systems and data requirements to support ongoing studies.
