Abstract [sv]

Idag blir det allt vanligare att kunder stä̈ller krav på att företag ska arbeta med miljöfrågor. Det finns ett antal verktyg företag kan använda sig av för att profilera sig som miljövänliga - exempelvis livscykelanalys, socialt ansvarstagande och certifierade ledningssystem. 

Företaget Formteknik Verktyg Unnaryd AB tillverkar formverktyg och har påbörjat att profilera sig som miljövänliga genom att använda ekodesign på sina produkter. De arbetar även med miljö- och kvalitetsledningssystem. För att få kunskap om Formteknik kan få mer vä̈lvilligt inställda kunder genom sitt arbete med ekodesign har några av deras kunder intervjuats och några av dem har svarat på en enkät. Vilka gröna verktyg som kunderna föredrar har också undersökts.

Resultaten visar att de flesta kunderna var tämligen samstämmiga gällande vilka faktorer som var viktigast vid inköp. Av de gröna verktygen var ISO 9001 och ISO 14001 mest uppskattade, medan pris och materialets kvalitet sågs som de viktigaste faktorerna att ta hänsyn till vid inköp. Ekodesign kan även skapa ett mervärde för Formteknik genom att öka produkternas prestanda. 

Abstract [en]

It is becoming more common that companies require that their suppliers work with evironmental issues. There are a number of tools that businesses can use to market themselves as environmentally friendly - for example life cycle assessment, corporate social responsibility and certified management systems.

The company Formteknik Verktyg Unnaryd AB manufactures molds and have begun to integrate ecodesign in their product development. They also work with environmental and quality management systems. To find out if Formteknik receive more well-disposed customers through their work with ecodesign, some of them have been interviewed and some of them answered a questionnaire. Which green tool their customers prefer have also been investigated.

The results show that most customers were quite unanimous about which factors that were most important when purchasing a mold. Of the green tools were ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 most appreciated, while the price and quality of the product were seen as the most important factors to take into account. Ecodesign can also create added value for Formteknik by increasing product performance.
