Abstract

Increasing consumer, regulatory and competitive pressures mean that companies are now seeking to deliver products that are not only of higher quality and lower cost, but which also have a reduced environmental affect. This paper presents the results of research conducted within companies in Europe and North America. The research has identified a number of factors that were felt to be significant to the companies’ successful implementation of environmentally conscious design. A set of questions are posed throughout the paper to demonstrate a technique for designers to asses their environmental knowledge and readiness.
