Context and description
The majority of organisations committed to eco-design initiatives begin with tests on a limited number of products.
Although this pragmatic approach is highly effective in order to trigger commitment, it needs to be consolidated via a global and cross-functional eco-design strategy.
This permits eco-design to be established at the core of the organisation's strategy, involving top decision-makers as well as various departments (purchasing, design, production, logistics, marketing…), and the priority actions to be put in place to be targeted.
Consequently, to sustainably commit an organisation to a value-creating initiative involving its entire chain, it is essential to develop and steer an eco-design strategy which is accompanied by human resources, processes and monitoring indicators.
