Whole system approaches to sustainable design can help to achieve 75 percent (Factor 4) or greater eco-efficiency savings in new designs. This is because "by the time the design for most human artefacts is completed but before they have actually been built, about 80-90 percent of their life-cycle economic and ecological costs have already been made inevitable. "Newly designed buildings and technologies often have long design lives hence it is critical that all designers ensure that new designs are as sustainable as possible."
