The classification which, for a long time, distinguished design from eco-design no longer has any meaning. Contemporary design must ensure the sustainability of the production process, the product and the behavior which it results in. Environmental requirements have become pre-requisites for contemporary design and, in future, projects will have to be the end-result of an ever-more in-depth study of the functional, semantic and environmental requirements which may stem from the relationship between people and the planet on which they live. This book looks into the debate surrounding the role of design on sustainable development, summarizing the most important milestones in a process that has made people aware that design, and hence designers, entrepreneurs, communications, distributors and final users must qall play a vital role in achieving sustainable development.
