There is a growing attention in exploring the synergies between Sustainability and Ergonomics (HFE), as both disciplines aim to investigate the relations between humans, living ecosystems, and artefacts used to perform informed tasks. Furthermore, a holistic interplay between human behaviours, creative practices, and contexts of use can be identified within the Human Centred Design domain (HCD). Whilst ergonomic interventions performed under the Sustainability domain must employ design-driven strategies, there is the need to further investigate the new contributions within HCD. This work aims to conceptualize a suitable research agenda for future explorations on Sustainable HCD. Results achieved in this study define a set of thirteen informed actions for Sustainable HCD, which allow to affirm that there are grounds for developing new research avenues linking HFE and Sustainability.
