Characteristics on eco-design and the practical guidelines on how to design your products in line with sustainability.

Published in: Business
  • I like the emphasis on critical thinking. This should not only be done concerning the environmental impact of products, but first on a level of whether the products we buy or consume actually meet our true concerns. In a way we need to overcome the materialistic values so dominant these days and, as you say, 'think critically' about whether these values are appropriate and actually constitute our well-being.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT• 1987, United Nations, Brundtland Commission: development that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”• 2011, Michael Thomas Needham: "as the ability to meet the needs of the present while contributing to the future generations’ needs.“ (There is an additional focus on the present generations responsibility to improve the future generations life). wikipedia.com credits: Getty Images

  9. 9. SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENTThe Three E’s Balance Rule“The Three E’s”: Equity, Economy and Ecology.(Agenda 21*) • Equity: to take joint action, encouraged by consultation among the various levels of government, to ensure conditions for human well-being (safety, health, education) for all the people in the world. • Economy: to produce and maintain the maximum added value within the territory, first exploiting actual resources. • Ecology: to enhance and protect the environment as a "distinctive element" of the territory.*Agenda 21 is an action agenda for the United Nations , other multilateralorganizations, and individual governments, with regards to sustainabledevelopment, product of the UN Conference on Environment andDevelopment (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. wikipedia.com credits: Getty Images

  14. 14. GUIDELINES OF ECODESIGN • Ecodesign regards all the life cycle of a product, from “Cradle to Cradle” (Michael Braungart, Bill McDonough), from raw materials to production to waste management to reintroduction of waste as raw material. product/+service Cradle waste to resource • We have to go beyond the appearance and understand its whole life cycle: a green product is not only that made of recycled or recyclable materials!credits: Getty Images
  15. 15. GUIDELINES OF ECODESIGN 1. Precycling: avoid the production of waste upstream. 2. “Cradle to cradle” design. 3. Evaluation of the environmental impact of the product before its production. 4. Design for reduction: avoid oversize, reduce thicknesses and quantity of material, dematerialization, integrate more functions. 5. Optimization of energy consumption (in production and use). C. Lanzavecchia, Il fare ecologico, Time&Mind Edizioni, Torino 2004credits: Getty Images
  16. 16. GUIDELINES OF ECODESIGN 6. Green technologies. 7. Avoid glues and varnished with chemicals (maybe replace with joints). 8. Reduce non-renewable resources and prefer renewable resources in short cycle (results of seasonal harvests). 9. Reduce materials with an heavy “rucksack” (amount of material taken from the environment for the production, use and disposal of a product). 10. Use of recycled materials or, if not possible, of recyclable materials (and facilitate their transport and recycle). C. Lanzavecchia, Il fare ecologico, Time&Mind Edizioni, Torino 2004credits: Getty Images
  17. 17. GUIDELINES OF ECODESIGN 11. Create production and consumption systems, respecting biodiversity, local cultures and human rights. 12. Industrial symbiosis: integrated factories (zero waste, zero emissions). 13. Reduce water consumption (in production and use). and use non-potable water for industrial uses. 14. Design packaging in parallel to product (to avoid further environmental costs in logistics). 15. Minimize transport consumption. C. Lanzavecchia, Il fare ecologico, Time&Mind Edizioni, Torino 2004credits: Getty Images
  18. 18. GUIDELINES OF ECODESIGN 16. Replace products with corresponding services. 17. Minimize noises increasing less possible the quantity of insulating material. 18. Equal lifetime of components or partially replacement of them (maintenance and upgrade). 19. Modularity and standardization. 20. Mark materials and reuse “in cascade” (e.g.: in a car from the bumper to the dashboard to mats) C. Lanzavecchia, Il fare ecologico, Time&Mind Edizioni, Torino 2004credits: Getty Images
  19. 19. GUIDELINES OF ECODESIGN 21. Long-life items, unless they are subjected to considerable technological upgrade and improvement towards sustainability. 22. Use a single material or compatible materials families or reduce the coexistence of different materials (screws and nails included). 23. Design for Assembly and Disassembly (if the previous is not possible). 24. Design for Components. C. Lanzavecchia, Il fare ecologico, Time&Mind Edizioni, Torino 2004credits: Getty Images

  21. 21. GREEN PRODUCTS ARE REALLY ECODESIGNED? • Check books on green design products and reflect if they apply actually Ecodesign guidelines. • Remember: not all products, which the market tell us are eco, are actually like that! The market lives of marketing and exploits values and ideas it wants through communication!credits: Getty Images
  22. 22. SOME PRODUCTS ARE ECODESIGNED…NOT INTENTIONALLY! • Surf the web to find 2 products which apply one or more guidelines of Ecodesign (possibly different guidelines). • Underline CED guidelines. • Remember: be critical!credits: Getty Images
  23. 23. …and remember: not just let us live, but to live.credits: Getty Images
