"Sustainable product design" aims at improving the environmental, economic, and social performance of a product over all life cycle phases. This requires a specific way of life-cycle-thinking, a target-oriented search for effective improvement strategies, a selection of successful measures, and an efficient implementation of these measures in the ongoing planning, decision-making and management processes. The main objective of this contribution is to describe these four planning and decision-making steps, the practical application of the ECODESIGN PILOT (Product Investigation, Learning and Optimisation Tool for Environmentally Sound Products with CD-ROM)  in education and application as well as examples from industry which illustrate how this concept can be used in practical applications.
