Dutch develop "eco-indicators" for product designers

Dutch consultancy PR has developed a series of eco-indicators for generic materials and waste disposal options to help product designers produce more environment-friendly products. Each indicator is based on a life-cycle assessment (LCA) which incorporates weightings of damage to ecosystems or human health caused by a series of environmental effects. The indicators could soon be used by hundreds of firms in the Netherlands and the methodology has been adopted by the Dutch Government as part of its strategy on products and the environment.
