Teaching Material

The project offers learning material on Eco Design and its implementation in SMEs. On the right column you can find an introduction to eco-design strategies, available in different languages.
The whole teaching material is available under Content.

The teaching material helps you to understand ecodesign and background coherences in a more complete and detailed way. It covers knowledge from basic ecodesign principles to ecodesign strategies, tools and methodologies. At the end of the 13 chapters full of information, examples and images you might be able to develop your individual eco-design strategy for your product portfolio.
It's your decision! You can read short abstracts on every chapter and download it separately. Or you download the whole document at once.

By an EcoDesign Test you can check your knowledge in advance - or afterwards.

Enjoy it!
