Sustainable design is also more commonly known as environment-friendly design. It is the kind of building or manufacturing design (and plan) that allows for use of renewable resources and sustainable energy. It is the idea of designing objects, services and built environment to conform to principles of economic, ecological and social sustainability.
Sustainable design has the intention to completely eliminate the increasing negative environmental impacts through sensitive and skillful design. To manifest sustainable design there should be no non-renewable resources used in manufacturing of products or in the building process. There should also be minimal environmental impact and the people should be connected with the natural environment in the most effective ways.
Aside from the objective of eliminating negative impact on the environment, sustainable design should also generate products that are valuable innovations.
