About the Sustainability Guide
The Sustainability Guide has been developed by SVID, the Swedish Industrial Design Foundation.
The environmental aim of SVID is to continuously work to change attitudes, habits and practices to reduce our impact on the environment. The greatest environmental initiatives that SVID can support are in the ongoing success of the eco-design profession and its clients. Relevant SVID projects include the provision of activities, information and training within the area of sustainability.
And this is where the Sustainability Guide comes into play.
The purpose of the Sustainability Guide is to make entrepreneurs, architects, community developers, designers, product developers, students, researchers and organizations more aware of the role of design in sustainable development. The Sustainability Guide has been funded through the programme Miljödrivna marknader (Environmentally Driven Markets) provided by the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth. It represents a first step in gathering information to enable the design of a sustainable future. The goal is to provide inspiration to take action!
SVID's efforts to lead the design profession in a more sustainable direction include improving the skills of designers and others through training in the area of sustainable business development.
