Despite the recognition of ecodesign potential benefits, its application has not reached companies over the last decades mainly due to difficulties in ecodesign implementation and management and lack of a systematization of existing practices. In order to support companies in dealing with those challenges and provide a structured classification of ecodesign practices, a systematic literature review was performed for the identification and classification of the existing practices, supporting the selection of the most suitable ones according to companies’ specific needs and characteristics.
