Sustainability Guideline

For Product Designers

Well-considered design minimizes environmental impacts such as harmful emissions, unnecessary waste and consumption of resources, and a lot of pollution.

All of this results from certain material designs and additional components, as well as from incorrect product applications, among other things.

In this guide, special designations, different standards and certification are formulated simply and clearly. The enumeration and classification of different material types and production processes are also described under sustainable aspects. More sustainable products should thus be better designed and produced.
