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.
