Given the growing demand from Governments, financial institutions, customers and the general public for a more responsible approach by companies to sustainable development, it is accepted that businesses must become more sustainable. It is therefore essential, particularly in product design and manufacture that sustainable development thinking and assessment is practised. The particular areas explored are: - Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) in which the importance of materials selection, recycling and disposal are assessed - Consumption reduction is a major direction resulting from the Johannesburg Summit i.e. waste minimisation and prevention - Identification of Risks and Opportunities from sustainable product development assessment within companies In addition sustainable development concepts, tools, background and sources of information are provided on an interactive website for use by manufacturers and design students. This work is sponsored by the Royal Academy of Engineering as part of the Visiting Professors Sustainable Design scheme for Engineering design students.
