What is Design for Environment - DfE?


DfE is a collective term for technologies that allow the design of eco-friendly products. The aim: Sustainable products that remain cost-effective and have fewer negative environmental impacts during the entire product life cycle.


Make informed decision at the early stage of designing

In order to make such informed decisions, sustainability and compliance data and criteria from all phases of the product life cycle have to be taken into account at the early stage of designing – from substance data to use-phase aspects and recycling concepts. This data has to be aggregated and made accessible.


Reduce the environmental impact of your product

About 80% of the total costs of a product are already determined in the concept and design phase. This also applies to sustainability: about 80% of the sustainability aspects of a product are already defined before Start of Production.

This means that the impact of products on the environment can be significantly reduced by informed decisions in the design stage.
