Mobile phones and other industrial products have "the number one impact" on climate change - architecture and design

Mobile phones and other industrial products have "the number one impact" on climate change



The products that designers help create are the biggest contributors to climate change, according to research presented at our Good Design for a Bad World talks at Dutch Design Week last month.

The claim came from designer Babette Porcelijn, who has published a book that explores the factors driving climate change and offering potential solutions to the problem.

"I made an impact top ten," said Porcelijn, presenting a graph of the ten biggest causes of climate change. "Number one is products. It's stuff. I'm an industrial designer so I was really educated to make these things. But it has the number one impact."

Electronic products such as mobile phones and computers are among the biggest contributors, she said, adding that her list contains more surprises, with animal farming coming second.
"Number two is meat," she said. "Then comes houses, then comes the car."

The findings are contained in her book, De Verborgen Impact (Hidden Impact), which explores the hidden impact of human activities on earth's climate, which most people are unaware of.
