Abstract [en]

"Sustainability" is only one of the many new definitions in the coating industry over last decade, but one, which has the greatest potential to affect change. To achieve sustainable development we must consider all kind of coatings impact into the environment, including environmental economic and social load. This kind of conceptual thinking can be applied at any level and for any decision-making process. The workshop method, developed in this study, expedites the selection of coating during conceptual design by developing a set of expressions that relate coating technical performance indicators (colour change, flaking, etc.) to environmental and economic impacts. These performance-based relationships provide a common ground for choosing among similarly functioning coating systems and provide insight for minimizing the environmental burdens. This paper has also described the process of testing a workshop technique for involving stakeholders and decision makers in generating "sustainable design" for exterior wood coatings. In this sense, the workshop method developed in this study is a tool in this process. One important element in the process of policy formulation in any workshop method is procedural justice, which is based on the multiple criteria analysis here.
