Making, transporting, using, maintaining and disposing of products all have impacts on the environment. For decades, the usual responses to such environmental problems were attempts by manufacturers to reduce wastes and pollution after they had been produced. Then, with increasingly tough environmental legislation, standards and voluntary agreements, plus pressure from environmental groups and ‘green’ consumers, manufacturers shifted their attention from trying to clean up their products’ environmental impacts during or after manufacture, to designing out as many of the impacts as possible during product development. Designing or redesigning products for the environment may be undertaken to different levels using different approaches – termed ‘Green design’, ‘Ecodesign’, ‘Sustainable design’, and ‘Sustainable innovation’ in the book.
While many innovations and new products fail, others have become highly successful in terms of widespread adoption and/or profitability. What do the case studies suggest distinguishes these successful innovations and new products from the less successful ones?
