Ecodesign is essential to companies that have recognized that environmental product responsibility is vital to long term success. However, its application has not reached companies worldwide over the last decade. It is still not clear which ecodesign practices should be selected and how to manage the process of integration into the product development process and continuous improvement. The paper presents the Ecodesign Maturity Model (EcoM2), a model that aims to guide companies in the Ecodesign implementation, and focuses the discussion on the Ecodesign Practices, one of the EcoM2 components.
