Tool for sustainable Design
Hello dear Adobe team,
At the moment there is a lot of talk about environmental problems and sustainability. Responsible use is particularly important when it comes to the use of finite and regenerative resources.
The AGD has developed a charter for sustainability for this purpose. "Designers are largely responsible for
how our world is shaped. Design shapes, design is a role model and creates
new awareness. Design consumes resources - sometimes more,
sometimes less. The sustainable use of natural resources,
with the environment and with the people who have remained in this world for generations
should be able to live, design must do justice. "
* Alliance of German Graphic Designers
Dimensions of sustainable design Sustainable design is:
- material-efficient and appropriate to the material - energy-efficient - low in pollutants - low or waste-reducing - durable - suitable for recycling and disposal - appropriate for logistics - appropriate for use - socially compatible - economical and successful
Hence, consideration should be given to orienting the designs to save ink and paper. Could Adobe provide a tool that can measure how much ink is used depending on the printing process and color setting? Thus, the material efficiency of a design could be checked and an optimization of the use of ink via measurable and comparable key figures could be inclined.
