Abstract

Increasing global population and consumption are causing declining natural and social systems. Sustainable development addresses these issues by integrating strategies for economic successes, environmental quality, and social equity. A Sustainability Target Method (STM) provides a practical Sustainability target for individual businesses and products through determining the relative indicator resource productivity for environmental performance and the absolute indicator Eco-Efficiency. Based on the indicators in STM, this paper formulates the component selection problem such that a company can improve Sustainability of its products most effectively through improving components' performance. The approach is illustrated through an example.
