    The emergence of the concept of sustainable development and thus led to increased interest in environmental issues (environmental). Sustainable development of products and processes involves reaching requirements of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own requirements. Practice eco-design aims to improve the product to determine a life cycle energy savings, waste, radiation and toxins. Sustainable product design must, however, include ecological service concepts such as using associated products, leasing ambient and sharing. Not neglected ethical and social issues that arise in the process of sustainable design. Sustainable development aimed at combining the long term, in the necessity of production and consumption, on one hand and a favorable environment for the protection of life, on the other hand. This philosophy also marks the transition from the preventive remedies. The whole economic activity of an organization is reflected on the environment but through eco-conscious management that can manage the actions that have or may have an effect on the environment. Its purpose is to protect natural resources, reduce pollution and environmental risks and preserving the health of employees and the surrounding population.
