Abstract

Designers are facing a new challenge: the integration of all the sustainable development dimensions in the product design. We can find tools and methods taking into account the environmental, economic and technical aspects in product design, but the social dimension is not yet considered enough. However, the integration of social aspects is more and more seen, by institutional and industrials actors, as the future of a responsible design. In this paper we propose a new method so as to associate the social dimension and the rational framework it implies to the technical rationality which prevails in tools for EcoDesign and Life Cycle Assessment.
