Sustainability and Design Ethics, Second Edition

Sustainability and Design Ethics, Second Edition

Jean Russ  (Author)
Sustainability as a concept remains just as challenging and important today as it was when the first edition of this book was published. The Second Edition of Sustainability and Design Ethics explores the ethical obligations of knowledgeable people such as design professionals, taking into consideration the numerous changes that have taken place in recent years. This book expands the growing discussion on the principles of sustainability to further include the role of businesses and governments and considers the general recognition that modern society has occurred at the expense of nature with significant social and environmental impacts.

Are there limits to the individual's ethical obligation? How do such obligations change or adapt to a world of sustainable design? As the shift toward sustainability proceeds, designers' ethical underpinnings will be confronted with a wider range of people and concerns whose interests must be weighed. The design professionals are likely to be among the lead in the shift toward sustainability because of the special knowledge and expertise provided to them by their education, experience, and distinctive position in society. The entire world of design is being reassessed and the guiding principles and ethics of design reflect this change.

New to the Second Edition:

Expanded international scope that includes a comparison of professional organizations in the EU, Australia, Canada, Japan and China

Discusses how cultural differences between the West and China result in different underlying foundations for professional ethics

Revised analyses to reflect changes in regulatory and technical areas such as the inevitable rise of artificial intelligence in design

Updated arguments reflecting the need for sustainability and the designer's role and obligations

Updated references pertaining to the progress of sustainable design and development

Sustainability and Design Ethics, Second Edition is an attempt to explore the ideas and principles that might contribute to the thinking of thoughtful design professionals. The emergence of "green" design discussed in this book is used to evidence progress, but also to demonstrate the degree to which more is needed.
