> Sustainable design

A product’s impact on our environment is ‘locked in’ during its design phase.  Considering the environment from early product development can evade or lessen downstream impacts and can have additional manufacturing benefits as well as an improved brand image. Sustainable design is not an add-on but an integral and mandatory part of the design process.

Guidance on sustainable design strategies can be given - aided  by streamlined Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) software, a product’s environmental load from extraction of the raw material through to manufacturing, packaging, use and disposal can be estimated - highlighting (re)design priorities for improvement.
