The tools allow to evaluate the implications of the strategies on the product design (=CE Designer), the business model (=CE Strategist) and its environmental effects (=CE Analyst). The portuguese waste management association "Sociedade Pontoverde" comissioned the adaptation of these Tools to meet the needs of the packaging sector, requiring a specific adaptation of their contents and methodology.
