Many life cycle assessment studies document that the most resource demanding phase during the clothing life cycle is the use period. This paper discusses how to reduce the environmental impacts of clothing use by improved design. Complete systems thinking is required, evaluating contributions by all the actors in the clothesÂ’ life cycle chain....

Implementing sustainability in business is steadily gaining more attention. A growing number of companies currently work on the implementation of sustainable criteria in the design related departments and their design processes. Although theory and methods are available, practice shows that this integration process of sustainability criteria is...

Increased focus in research on the environmental consequences of behaviour and product usage the last decade has resulted in a number of different design strategies. The strategies are meant to stimulate desired behavioural patterns or to avoid undesired ones. Although this provides understanding of how behaviour may be changed, there has been...

Design for sustainable behaviour implies applying design strategies that have been proposed to realize sustainable products that take into account human behavior, thereby minimizing user-related environmental losses. In addition, the application of linked-benefit strategies has been suggested to ensure the design of commercially interesting...

The traditional purpose of packaging for consumer electronics (CE) products was to get them in one piece from the factory to the consumers home. It was purely focused on the physical distribution. In that time, buying a CE product could be considered a major family investment. However, times have changed, as nowadays a trend of commoditization...

From the perspective of a multinational corporation producing durable consumer goods sustainable packaging is packaging that fulfils the right functionalities in the most efficient way. In order to achieve this, an integral design process is required. Such an integral approach to the design of packaging for CE goods would imply a process that...

Design for Sustainability has traditionally focused strongly on green fulfilment of a given function, i.e. the process after a design brief has been formulated. The part of the New Product Development process that comes before the formulation of the design brief, is usually referred to as the Fuzzy Front End. Here, the function is determined...

Traditionally packaging design-for-sustainability (DfS) strongly focuses on resource conservation and material recycling. The type and amount of materials used has been the driver in design. For consumer electronics (CE) products this weight-based approach is too limited; a volume-based approach is needed. As this paper will show, from an...

Two major changes are currently taking place in the world of Consumer Electronics. They are, first, the relocation of production to low-wage countries, in particularly China. This results in longer distribution distances, which lead to a higher relative importance of this phase in the entire life cycle. To make this phase as efficient as...
