GLRPPR Sector Resource: The Centre for Sustainable Design
The Centre for Sustainable Design
The Centre for Sustainable Design (CfSD) facilitates discussion and research on eco-design and broader sustainability considerations in product and service development. This is achieved through training, workshops, conferences, research, consultancy, publications, and the Internet. The Centre also acts as an information clearinghouse and a focus for innovative thinking on sustainable products and services. CfSD was established in 1995 within the Faculty of Design at The Surrey Institute of Art & Design, University College, in the UK. CfSD has organised over 30 conferences and workshops, and undertaken a wide range of research and training projects on eco-product development and sustainable product design. It has achieved an international reputation for high quality, innovative, leading-edge work. CfSD is supported by an international advisory board.
The CfSD web site includes information on research; training opportunities; links to publications, reports, discussion papers and other online resources; information on the Journal of Sustainable Product Design; and information on "seeba," which deals with producer responsibility within the electrical and electronics sector.
