Industrial design provides companies with a combination of resources, tools and work methodologies directed at supplying the product with the features to meet the targeted market and client expectations. What we know as eco-design makes sense here since it integrates environmental criteria into the design of products.

Industrial eco-design aims at reducing the negative environmental impact that can generate throughout the life cycle of a product and improving as far as possible the remaining characteristics according to the demands of the target customer. All along the manufacturing until the commercial distribution, manufactured products require energy and raw material consumption, generate emissions and waste during the manufacturing process and at the end of their lifespan.
