Design for environment is an approach that was developed for the minimization and reduction of pollution and other environmental hazards from the products and processes. It was also designed to minimize the emissions during the manufacturing process and reduce the waste and scrap that is created. It also takes into consideration the health and safety aspect. DFE is also targeted towards the safety of the environment and encourages the idea of designing the products with lesser and non toxic materials, safer packaging, reduce the energy usage and increasing the environmental friendly features instead of that. It also helps to achieve the management goals along with no negative environmental impacts. Since more and more awareness has been created regarding the environmental issues and the by products of those issues therefore the programs like design for environment are being appreciated and followed by many businesses and industries.

The importance of this program can be seen through the fact that it is playing an important role in the environmental protection and many large multinational organizations like HP, IBM are using it as a framework for designing safer products. Therefore the design for environment approach and its tools can be used to make products and services that not only meet organizational objectives but also environmental expectations.
