Why should we go for designing more sustainable products and services? How to do so? Will it "pay off"? How to turn sustainability requirements into opportunities rather than constraints? How to make sustainability "value-pull" rather than "directive-push"? How to roll out sustainable design in our organisation?

This course will deal with these and many other questions asked by industrial decision-makers in various sectors. "Sustainable design as an opportunity for *innovation rather than an obligation for compliance" is the motto.
