The Waste Index gives comparable results, which is not the case for aggregated indices according to (Ayres 1995). We believe that the Waste Index framework can serve as a good basis upon which better indices can be derived or developed. g. (Jensen, Elkington et al. 1997). 7. THE UNIQUE FEATURES AS WE SEE THEM The problems we have today cannot be solved by think ing the way we thought when we created them . Albert Einstein The sum of the previous sections is that our ability to successfully realize products, processes and implement necessary organizational changes in a sustainable manner rests upon our ability to assess and manage the impact of our products and processes in a value-chain and life-cycle perspective.

Scope' , which describes the model of the systems to be studied. The scope should be defined well enough to ensure that the breadth and depth of a study are compatible with and sufficient to address the stated goal. 3. ' Function and functional unit' . The function is the performance characteristics of the system, while the functional unit is selected to measure 'the performance of the functional outputs of the product system' . 4. 'System boundaries', which define the unit processes that will be included in the system to be modeled.

The use of resources must be effective and just with respect to meeting human needs. Basically, the first and second principles state that the natural equilibrium of material concentrations should not be disturbed. The third principle states that we should not destroy natural ecosystems. The fourth principle deals with equitable use of natural resources. Although these principles are too vague to be applicable directly in engineering design and management, they do facilitate a foundation upon which strategy and policy can be built.
