demi is a web-resource bringing together wide ranging information on design for sustainability.


It was developed in response to the growing realisation that design activities have a major (negative) impact on society and the environment. For example, 90% of products' environmental impact is known to be determined in the earliest stages of design.

We believe that designers can make things better as well as worse. And for a much needed sustainability revolution to occur, information and inspiration is required... demi is a good starting point for both of these.

To help you work with demi, we've clustered the information into six sectors:


The way we think about demi is as an information landscape with lots of possible routes to travel. We've developed a map to help you find your way around this landscape. It's a graphical representation of the information in demi at a particular point in your journey, a bit like a signpost. We suggest that you use this map along with the free search, keywords and external links to experience demi's full variety and richness of information.
