    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    The concept of handprint has been introduced to measure and communicate the positive changes of actions and the beneficial impacts created within the life cycle of products, services, processes, companies, organizations or individuals. A handprint of a product can be created either by preventing or avoiding negative impacts (footprints), or by creating positive benefits. The handprint of a company considers the footprint of the company itself, but also the positive changes the company influences to impacts of individuals or other companies.
