A framework and methodology for assessing the societal benefits of a product was developed based on the assertion that, in order to access future diminishing resources, manufacturers will need to demonstrate both the social and environmental benefits of their products. This paper follows on from this published research and presents an integrated tool to support the implementation of this framework and methodology within the toy industry during the design and development phase. A simulated case study is used to exemplify the application of this tool and to support the concluding discussions.
