Abstract:As the product-service system has shifted from its original concept to the Industrial PSS; its scope has expanded to include industrial products. Furthermore; the overall goal of reducing environmental impacts has been left behind. Despite the PSS’s potential as a business model for a more sustainable production and consumption system; the mere addition of services to conventional products does not necessarily lead to a reduction of environmental impacts. This paper aims to discuss the concepts related to PSS; the need for considering environmental impact reduction as a critical issue for sustainability; and the role of ecodesign practices in the development of PSS.
