http://www.environmentalleader.com/2012/12/04/engineers-more-involved-in-sustainable-design-survey-finds/ The link in this article titled: 2012 Sustainable Design Trend Watch Survey has some interesting insight into how mechanical engineers and manufacturers are practicing “green” or “eco” design and how sustainability in manufacturing is changing over time. The professional survey consisted of 23 questions and generated nearly 4,470 responses. Approximately 61 percent of the working engineer respondents had more than 20 years career experience. This growing interest/need for sustainable design is changing the way we think, manufacture, and sell products today.
