Abstract

Following the situation analysis from Chapter 2 and the identified strategies in Chapter 3 it is now time to discuss concrete action to implement Ecodesign in the company. We know where the weak points are, and what the improvement strategies look like. It is now time to take action again on corporate, market, product, production and management level. It is time to come up with an action plan.
