It’s imperative that all sectors adapt to global warming, including technology designers and researchers exploring social robotics in healthcare. However, sustainability is a complex concept, and its operationalization mechanisms are not easily defined. In this document, we share a collaborative team reflection of possible pathways to sustainable design of an AI-augmented, socially assistive robot prototype application. Our mapping suggests that empirical and conceptual studies, within the research and design team and with stakeholders, may address all three dimensions of sustainability - environmental, economic, and social - at a micro, meso, and macro level. The map of possible pathways is neither a complete collection nor a silver bullet to a fully sustainable technological solution. Nonetheless, we hope that it furthers the discussion regarding possible ways to include sustainability as a tool in the design box and to research sustainable design in social robotics.
