The goal is to provide an overview of the methods available on the market for monitoring design processes with regard to ecological and social sustainability. The bandwidth and the application possibilities of the tools presented are vast: One important category of tools encompasses software programs and databases that allow life-cycle assessments, analyses and material reviews. In addition to these “technical” methods for determining the hard facts, there will also be inspiring approaches that encourage new methods with thought-provoking and questioning techniques, from the dematerialization of design to do-it-yourself and service-design strategies.
