[Design Council]: About: Sustainability
Sustainable design is everything good design ought to be, delivering the best (social, environmental and economic) performance or result for the least (social, environmental and economic) cost. It is the strategic use of design to meet and integrate current and future human needs without compromising the environment. It includes (re)design of products, processes, services or systems to tackle imbalances or trade-offs between the demands of society, the environment and the economy and requires the holistic consideration of the impact of products or services in these three areas, now and in the future. Where possible, it also includes restoration of damage already done.
