Abstract

The Environmental Efficiency Potential Assessment (E2-PA) is a decision-making tool specifically designed to support eco-design of products by product designers and developers. The conceptual basis of E2-PA came from eco-efficiency and is characterised by its assessment policy, which evaluates the environmental performance in terms of the potential environmental impacts of the product. Sensitivity analyses of the E2-PA tool showed a consistent trend with life-cycle assessment (LCA). This result and the characteristics of the E2-PA indicate its potential as a useful tool for eco-design.
