ESPINACH, Francesc Xavier; RIPOLL, Ramón; TRESSERRAS, Josep  e  JULIAN, Fernando. Elements that define the social responsibility of a product. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2014, vol.81, n.186, pp.175-183. ISSN 0012-7353.

The research is based on the relationships established between the design processes, the products that are the result of such processes and all the other affected actors. The definition of a Socially Responsible Product (PSR), from the point of view of the companies and the designers, is researched, and also, how that concept affects their working processes. The research builds a research framework, by analyzing the tasks developed by the practitioners. This is a qualitative analysis using a Grounded Theory and case studies. The scope of the research includes interviews with junior designers and companies, and the subsequent triangulation the results with the opinions of experts. The main results were the specification of the features that a product must exhibit to be considered socially responsible, together with the proposal to include these categories in the basic specification of the products.
