TBS Cooperation Environment- Innovation

Published Jan 17, 2011

The project Environment – Innovation, developed a tool for environmental verification of a product in the early innovation stage. This meant that the innovator/company together with a representative from Industrial Ecology, discussed different environmental aspects of the product from a lifecycle perspective. Raw material, transport, energy demands, utilisation and waste management were included. The tool consists of a criteria matrix combined with a discussion sheet, which are filled in during the discussion and serve as a verification protocol. The Environmental verification was done on 5 companies and the results were summarized in a report (in Swedish only). Feedback showed a positive interest for the verification.

A working group was established consisting of representatives from: KTH, Innovation Stockholm/ALMI, Innovationsbron i Stockholm, Teknikhöjden, KTH Innovation, STING and Stockholms Universitet.

The project ended in June 2007 but the verification is still performed and self financed. The project was financed by Innovationsbron i Stockholm.
