abstract = "Companies use various evaluation and decision making criteria in their product development projects, to ensure the selection of the right projects to their project portfolio. Recently, sustainability has become an increasingly important decision parameter in companies, but it has not, yet, been studied sufficiently as part of decision making in product development projects. This study pursues increased understanding on the ways in which companies can embed sustainability into their decision making and information search. We employed a qualitative, interview-based research design with three environmentally oriented companies and studied their practices of sustainability-related decision making in projects. The results map factors relevant in sustainability-based decision making particularly concerning the product development task, decision makers, decision elicitation and decision aggregation. Sustainability-orientation in decision making particularly reveals internal information processes, decision makers’ different incentives, cost saving orientation and relationships between different project evaluation criteria as relevant factors. The paper contributes by supplementing a generic framework of relevant factors in product development decision making with specifics in sustainability-based decision making.",
