ECO-VIRTUOSITY: MANAGEMENT OF ECODESIGN ISSUES
Customer awareness of environmental problems is following an upward trend these days, pushing companies to put on the market an ever larger range of “green products”. This aspect is also underlined by the recent extension of the scope of the so-called “EuP” Directive. The research work investigated how to combine environmental mandatory issues with traditional EcoDesign tools efficiently. The results obtained allow designers to shift from control to management of the design activities, increasing their awareness about the way they are paying attention to environmental issues while designing.
