Abstract: 

Assessing the environmental performance of industrial processes is an established activity at most manufacturing companies. However, many of the broader environmental impacts attributable to a company are defined during the conceptualization and development of its products. Incorporating product-based environmental assessment into these activities can help companies achieve new levels of sustainable innovation.
