Design should put concerns for the planet equal to concerns for the user and the client’s bottom line

“All designers have an influence on the future of the earth through their work, and they can all work towards more sustainable solutions and to optimize the products, services or environments they work with within the limitations of the task at hand… Fundamentally speaking, sustainable design solutions are about making informed choices where concerns for the planet carry equal weight to concerns for the user and the bottom line of the client for whom the design is developed.” – Danish Designers Manifesto

This quote is from the fantastic design manifesto from danishdesigners.com. Read the full report here (PDF).

Thanks to @behoff for tweeting about the report.

    Good gosh, man. You are a sheeple. I'm not anti-green movement, I am just weary of this bandwagon syndrome we have. What is the next cause we're all going to get on our judgmental soapbox on for? What the heck does web design have to do with sustainability? Nothing. This political correctness junk makes me intellectually ill. Think for yourself, please.
