Beskrivning

Manufacturers and distributors of final products have a crucial role in the selection and/or verification of materials for their new products. They face challenges in developing and in selling environmentally benign products that are both more resource efficient and safe – they are encouraged to increase the use of recycled materials while at the same time must ensure that their products are free from hazardous substances that can cause risks to humans and the environment.
This project sought to obtain concrete knowledge on perception, experiences, and future outlook of manufacturers and distributors of selected product groups in two-related areas: the increased use of recycled materials and the decreased use of toxic substances.
