What is Sustainable Design?

Sustainable Design blends environmental aspects into product design and development at a product's conception to enhance environmental performance throughout its lifecycle.

Sustainable Design highlights environmental potentials and weaknesses and thus provides important decision making guidance for product developers. This is particularly relevant when choosing material and production processes, recycling qualities or observing legal guidelines. Only through this kind of early consideration can environmental impacts be reduced to the greatest possible extent.

Our process begins by creating a customised Sustainable Design concept for your company. We assess all environmental impacts, evaluate potentials to improve and detect weak points. thinkstep provides sound interpretations and support in reporting acquired results, e.g. by transferring them into automatic reporting tools (e.g. i-report) or into messages applicable to various stake-holders.
