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.
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 reduced by informed decisions in the design stage.
