  • Market leadership and strong growth continues to drive an increase in volumes for ResMed to produce and ship, bringing into sharp focus the cost and environmental impact to create and move our products to market. Several ambitious targets were made to address waste, cost and efficiency. In one area of focus; it was identified that addressing the materials and volume of our packaging was a key enabler in reducing our environmental impact and cost to serve. Taking a holistic approach at the genesis of the project and considering the impact of product architecture on these factors opened opportunity to drive innovation. Whilst improving key aspects of performance, the Air11 Design Team managed to define an architecture that is 21.5mm slimmer & uses 8% less volume than Air10 – facilitating a more consumer aesthetic and user-friendly shape whilst dramatically impacting the efficiency of shipping Air11 to market. At full production Air11™ will palletise with a 67% gain over the previous generation Air10™ device whilst at the same time delivering a reduction of over 300 metric tonnes of Cardboard per annum* - a 39% reduction from the previous generation product. *on forecast sales volumes.
