auditing helps companies identify areas where environmental awareness principles

is a circular economy and more and more companies around the world are on the
process of implementing it. The Estonian Design Center in cooperation with its

is an approach in which economic growth is separated from the over-exploitation
of natural resources and the associated hazardous environmental effects. No
material is wasted, but resources and materials circulate endlessly, thus
producing longer value. Products shall be designed and constructed in such a
way that products, their components and materials are reused and recycled. The
aim is to reduce the need for new, natural raw materials and to ensure that
substances that return to nature do not cause undesirable side effects.
The role of ecodesign
is to create innovative solutions for products and services, emphasizing the
rational use of resources, reducing waste, creating new innovative business
models that look for alternatives to products and their materials, rather than
turning them into waste.
