Case studies of sustainable design and eco efficiency

Introduction to the unit

Many designers have taken onboard the need to assist in achieving sustainability whilst fuelling a thriving economy with growth in production and consumption levels inherent in a capitalist framework. No two designers are necessarily the same. Their profiles, their designs and their ethical stances may also be quite different. This Unit examines how companies and individual designers have established a distinctive profile and have invested much of their creativity towards Sustainable Product Design (SPD).
