The Solutions

Integrating environmental considerations within any design process requires new strategic thinking and new design activities. Making these changes requires a combined ‘top down’ management approach and ‘bottom up’ design approach. Addressing this need, the G.EN.ESI project outcomes include a comprehensive methodology that guides the management of environmental integration within existing design and development processes, and a suite of software tools that support environmental decision making during product development. The outputs of the G.EN.ESI project have been develop to support the production of competitive, cost effective products whose environmental impacts have been reduced throughout the product lifecycle.

Software Platform 

G.EN.ESI is being realised through the development of a set of new software tools which provide streamlined environmental assessment and eco-design decision support throughout the design development process


The G.EN.ESI methodology provides a structured workflow that supports the integration of environmental design activities and management within existing design and engineering departments.

Education Centre

To support knowledge development the G.EN.ESI offers learning, teaching and training materials to help you understand eco-design within your industrial context. These varied media resources cover both introductory and advanced topics

This project is co-financed by the European Commission and made possible within the VII Framework Programme FP7-NMP-201 l-SMALL-5 - Grant Agreement Number 280371.
