Large, made-to-order (LMTO) products and processes are complex in terms of their material and energy outputs and outputs. Consequently, the assessment of environmental impacts from cradle to grave is a difficult task but a necessary exercise upon which to base design decisions. In this regard, the current treatment of environmental issues by two companies within LMTO sector is studied. Fifty questionnaires were issued to the design of each company to assess current practice in the integration of environmental issues with design activities, awareness of environmental issues, awareness of existing environmental design tools and the preferred format for a potential clean design tool.
