Abstract

This paper aimed at defining the features and goals of eco-innovation compared to eco-design in industry. Both academic and normative approaches have difficulties establishing sharp boundaries, as shown by a survey conducted with 12 French industrial organizations. As an emerging topic, eco-innovation is not supported by any structured process. Eco-innovative products are sometimes created but they mainly result from economic and environmental constraints. A crucial question is thus the transfer of academic methods and tools towards industry.
