Design for Environment

This book offers a business-driven rationale for developing sustainable products and manufacturing processes. The author argues that innovation and environmentalism generate value for businesses as well as helping communities to meet local and global energy and clean environment challenges. It offers a toolkit to manage an entire product life-cycle. For example, examples suggest integrating development of new products with engineering. It provides a suite of environmental strategies and provided analysis for selecting those that are appropriate for use in your company or organization. Finally, it offers metrics that can help measure the effectiveness of product and process life-cycle management.
