| EcoDesign can be defined as the development of new products and services that have taken into consideration and minimised as much as possible the potential environmental impacts throughout its lifecycle. The development of Eco-designed products and services has many advantages for a company, the three most important being:
Reducing risk through legal compliance
EcoDesign ensures the conformity of products with current and future applicable environmental legislation. For example, based on the EU Directive on the eco-design of energy related products (ErP – or EcoDesign), there are always new environmental requirements that must be fulfilled in order to be awarded with the CE-label.
Meeting customer demands and increasing innovation
EcoDesign is the key to the development of products that meet customer’s increasing demands for product quality, reliability and environmental friendliness. Simultaneously it encourages the search for new solution space for innovation and development of new business models.
Improving brand image
Being actively environmentally responsible for ones products results in a positive image for the company. EcoDesign increases the environmental image of a company and thus the perception of customers towards its products.
