Section: ECO DESIGN IMPLEMENTATION WORKSHOP
Eco-design has been a widely discussed issue in the past few years. The reason for this is not only the ongoing changes in legal frameworks (regarding the environmental aspects of consumer products). But there is also a growing environmental consciousness of the customer. This forces producers to seriously reflect on this issue.

The advantage of this approach is its potential to implement a complex product analysis within a relatively short period of time and to subsequently facilitate effective product improvements.
