Dare to eco-design

Re-think the entire life cycle of a product in order
to minimise its environmental impacts.

What is eco-design ?
From the very design stage of a process, good or service, eco-design aims to take account of the entire life cycle (production, manufacturing, transport, maintenance, end-of-life …) in order to minimise environmental impacts.

Eco-design also means ensuring that the performances of a product or a service are not degraded by reducing the environmental impacts. The service provided must be equivalent or superior.
