You are kindly invited to attend the launch of the newly formed European Network of Ecodesign Centres (ENEC) that will take place 28/11/2012 in Brussels.

Can design be good, if it does not consider all of the key environmental, social and economic impacts throughout the life cycle? Over the last 20 years I have frequently asked this question. My answer has always been no. I believe design and the design industry must take responsibility for its environmental and social impacts. There is no alternative.
