This brochure explains why companies and designers care about ecodesign, what ecodesign is and how it works in practice. It contains numerous examples and helpful cross-references to methods and tools, information sources, framework conditions and funding instruments.
Companies that are interested in ecodesign but do not yet implement it are given a sound preliminary overview and inspiration for further development. Companies that are already active in this field can compare their approach with that of other companies, receive suggestions on how they can further develop their own ecodesign strategies, and get information on the current status of framework conditions and practice.
