Course Description

Sustainable Design or Design for Sustainability (DfS) goes beyond how to make a ‘green product’. This concept also includes how to satisfy the needs of the consumer from three different points of view at a system level – social, economic and environmental. In this regard, innovation in product design and development is closely connected with sustainability: both are oriented to change and the future. On one hand, sustainability is concerned with the well-being and, on the other hand, product innovation is concerned with the creation of new products and services that generate value only if they fit in that future. Both need to be jointly addressed.
