This paper discusses various methods for creating a sustainable product design and discusses successfully implemented projects. Design sustainability is based on three major components: social, economic and environmental. Over the past few years, the concept of "sustainable design" has become very relevant and has been recognized by the largest cities and industrial enterprises in order to minimize environmental pollution. Attention is drawn to some alternative energy sources and their applications in environmental design and green design. The most effective systems that meet the requirements of environmental design are proposed. The new concept of sustainable design is a multifaceted concept that includes such levels as "harmonious design", "saving natural resources" (wood, water, and energy), "taking care of health" and "people's safety". In other words, it is an optimization of all components of the arrangement of a home, office, and any other object. The authors conclude that focusing on the goal of environmental design, where success is measured by improving the health and well-being of people, other living beings and ecosystems, can contribute to a more sustainable environment that could better adapt to mining, climate change and economic change.
