In this paper we define ecodesign as - 'design which addresses all environmental impacts of a product throughout the complete lifecycle of the product, whilst aiming to enhance other criteria like function, quality, and appearance'.
On the basis of an ongoing survey of UK organisations, we are able to describe the main policies which contribute, largely in a makeshift or transient way, to ecodesign.
Finally, ecodesign is related to the larger territory of 'sustainable design'. We argue that needs can be fulfilled in ways that substantially reduce global pressures on finite resources and decrease levels of waste and pollution.
