This article describes an exploratory study of the inclusion of territorial resources in a business's value-creating process through the application of a global and systemic ecodesign approach. Incorporation of these new resources will enable businesses to improve their global performance. The context and the issues are described, after which we proceed to outline a theoretical model illustrated with examples of successful implementation that substantiate our presentation.
