Setting Environmental Targets in Product Development
2009 (English)In: ICED 09 - THE 17TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ENGINEERING DESIGN, 2009, 35-46 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
An import factor for reaching environmental improvements in product development is to have relevant environmental targets that actually influence the product development process. In this paper are procedures of setting environmental targets for product development projects identified, described and analyzed based on studies in three large companies operating in different industries. The different procedures have their own advantages and disadvantages and some of them can be combined within a company. The aim is to illustrate approaches of setting environmental targets early on and show different procedures of setting the environmental targets at a strategic level and how the way of setting environmental targets early on influences the product development process. This paper has a strong empirical connection.
