Green Design

  1. Manufactured Goods

Australia is a net importer of manufactured goods and manufacturing that does take place here is often the assembly of imported components, for example in the automotive industry. As a result there is limited opportunity to apply green design principles directly to manufactured goods in the way that the WEEE Directive did to electronic goods in Europe. Despite this, some countries are considerably more advanced in the area of green design and Australia benefits from this when we import and use their goods. One way to encourage green design would be to impose sale or import restrictions on those products that do not meet certain green design principles in same way that goods sold in Australia must meet certain safety standards.
