EcoDesign Circle 4.0

Currently, Medina Art LTD, as a Russian partner, is implementing the international project “EcoDesign Circle 4.0”, which is aimed at developing ecodesign as one of the driving forces of the economy of the Baltic Sea region. This project brings together designers, business representatives and specialists in sustainable development from Germany, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Estonia and Russia, as well as those who are interested in implementation of technologies that can reduce the negative impact on the environment at all stages of the product’s life cycle. The project is funded by the INTERREG Baltic Sea Region Program grant.


A key aim of "Ecodesign and Circular Economy 4.0" is to reduce the negative impact of a product or service on the environment. Ecodesign refers to innovative design solutions that take into consideration the entire life cycle of a product or service – from the extraction of raw materials to production, distribution and exploitation– all the way to recycling, “reparability”, and disposal. Minimization of pollutants during the production period is just as important as it is during the product’s lifetime. However, ecodesign is a flexible and evolving concept that is better considered as an approach to design than as a label for eco-friendly products.


The use of energy-efficient and eco-friendly resources is certainly an important aspect, but the concept of ecodesign goes beyond this. It is a holistic approach, keeping in view environmental, social and economic benefits as well as aesthetically appealing and durable design. Ecodesign by its nature fosters innovation and promotes behavioral change in producers and consumers towards product-service systems and self-sufficiency. It envisions “ecologically-minded” thinking not as an add-on but as part of the fundamental design process right from the start. Once it has made the leap from theory to practice, ecodesign can help achieve the move towards a circular economy that benefits people and the environment.
