What is Eco-design? is a comprehensive on line resource that provides essential grounding in sustainable design principles for industrial, graphic, fashion and textile designers. Guidelines are provided on ways to integrate eco-principles into design without compromising product quality, functionality, reliability aesthetics, costs or marketability.
Developed by the Centre for Design at RMIT University, WSP Environmental and leading industry experts, What is Eco-design? provides relevant, practical information and quick reference guides.
It is important to emphasise that eco-design is not about dismissing the fundamental principles of design simply in favour of environmental gains. Positive environmental outcomes can be achieved during the design stage to ensure the best performance or result can be delivered over the long term without compromising form or function.
