Q: What can you do to implement a whole life approach to sustainability in your business?
1. Most respondents were willing to develop a whole life approach, life tools and databases in their business.
2. Some said they would promote a whole life approach among design teams rather than `lowest cost’, e.g. through conferences, training, workshops and publications.
3. Other suggestions included finding end-of-life applications for products; improving robustness of materials; introducing environmental management systems; carrying out life cycle assessments; and carbon foot-printing of business activities.
