Introducing Dr. Dariush Rafinejad's new book:
SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT INNOVATION:
Entrepreneurship for Human Well-Being

Dariush Rafinejad, Ph.D.
This important book, designed for academic courses, certifications, and professional training, makes a well-supported business case for sustainable product development, and why human well-being must become the overarching goal of new technology and product development.
It presents a holistic systems approach for achieving multi-stakeholder optimization in product lifecycle design in order to meet a firm’s objectives, investors’ return-on-investment expectations, and regulatory requirements while protecting the environment and rapidly depleting natural resources needed to sustain and enhance human well-being. It also provides entrepreneurs and executives the guidance and decision-making tools needed for achieving superior commercial success.
