Sustainable Solutions. Developing Products and Services for the Future [ISBN: 1 874719 36 5]

This is the title of a new publication edited by Martin Charter, The Centre for Sustainable Design, UK, and Ursula Tischner, econcept, Germany (Greenleaf Publishing: Sheffield, UK). 'Sustainable Solutions' provides state-of-the-art analysis and case studies on why and how cutting-edge companies are developing new products and services to fit 'triple-bottom-line' expectations.

The book is split into three sections. First, the broad issues of business sustainability are examined with a focus on sustainable production and consumption and consideration of North-South issues. Second, the book tackles the major methodologies and approaches toward organising and developing more sustainable products and services. Third, an outstanding collection of global case studies highlights the progress made by a wide range of companies toward dematerialisation, eco-innovation and design for durability. Finally, the book collects together a comprehensive set of web addresses of useful organisations.

Practical and comprehensive, 'Sustainable Solutions' will be essential reading for corporate managers, product designers, R&D staff, academics and all individuals interested in a definitive source on how new product and service development can and is contributing toward tackling the challenge of sustainable development.
