5)The role of sustainable resource management through product design

The University of Hull is investigating the role of sustainable resource management through product design and would appreciate any colleagues within industry completing a short survey.

The survey can be found at the following URL:

We would be happy to release the results of the survey to any one participating.

Further information about the project and the survey can be found at:, but in short the study is investigating the use of the design phase of a product life cycle as a point of policy intervention to promote environmental performance across product life-span.

For policy interventions to be effective at influencing product design, they need to be grounded in a thorough understanding of the design process, and designer engagement with environmental requirements. Thus the primary questions addressed by this study and thus the survey are:
1) How is the design process managed within companies? and
2) How are environmental issues incorporated into product design?

6) Conference Pictures
The last couple of weeks I had a bit of time to start posting
the pictures some of you sent me over the years while attending
our EUROSIS conferences.

So far I have posted pictures of
ESM'2007 (new ones)
and ESM'2003

Now going through my files I did see I lost some
pictures when I had a computer crash some time ago.
from ESM'2003 (conference dinner pictures)
from EUROMEDIA'2006 (pictures from inside
the Athens Hard Rock Cafe with a group
of participants)
So if anyone still has those or some other
pictures I might not have and you wish to share
do not hesitate to send them to me.
I'll keep you posted if other pictures disappeared
in cyberspace at a later date.

That's all folks for this issue
