Our work supports and promotes design that’s responsible and friendly to people and the environment. We aim to:

* Inspire designers to make sustainability a core consideration, and an opportunity rather than a constraint.
* Entice and motivate consumers to make more sustainable choices, learning about the stories behind the products we invite into our homes and rethinking our domestic waste and energy use.
* Help manufacturers to discover new sustainable design and more sustainable materials, processes and systems.
* Show specifiers and purchasers that “good” choices can also be gorgeous.
* Enable retailers to seize the opportunities presented by the demand for sustainable products.
* Encourage government and the public sector to tap into the power of design to create positive environmental and social change.
