We all want industry to be competitive. At the same time, we want sustainable development. Ecodesign is all about creating products that deliver maximal benefit with minimal environmental burden.
How does my product affect the environment?
Swerea has longstanding experience in the area of ecodesign, via both commissioned R&D work and research projects. To be able to determine and prioritize aspects of a product that must be improved with respect to environment, it is necessary to analyze the product's environmental impact from a lifecycle perspective. It may be a matter of analyzing raw material, manufacturing processes, usage and management of residues.
