This paper examines academic research in the area of environmentally conscious design and the extent to which this supports industrial practices in the same area.

Results are presented from a survey of 20 industrialists and academics conducted in the UK. A number of research areas are highlighted where industry requirements are not being met. Also shown are the areas where academics wish to begin researching, but have not yet managed to gain suitable industrial commitment.
