ECO
CONCEPTION

Companies must evolve with respect,
and constantly adapt to social challenges
and expectations of the population.

Starting with the product development strategies enables you to improve an existing product by means of appropriate ECODESIGN measures.

In order to improve the environmental performance each product requires specific measures depending on its environmental impact at different stages of its service life. Thus, different measures have to be taken for products with the main environmental impact at the use stage (use intensive) than for products with the main impact during manufacture (manufacture intensive). Now, what measures are appropriate for which product? Working through the checklists will result in a complete list of ECODESIGN measures particularly suited for your product.

One of the tools available, with the aim of reducing environmental impact of each product following five criterias:

  • Type A: Raw Material Intensive
  • Type B: Manufacture Intensive
  • Type C: Transportation Intensive
  • Type D: Use Intensive
  • Type E: Disposal Intensive
Here, as an example, the first step in a process of analyzing the eco conception of a product: the tool is available as a online software at :

This is how a method of Eco Conception works. When we have identified areas improvement, we have to fill a specific form associated with this improvement axis. This specific form allows to prioritize the importance of actions, discover the chosen solutions and quantify results.
