Today, eco-innovation is a major challenge for companies. This new innovation approach requires to renew current practices to meet new societal and environmental issues. To do this, more and more companies create innovation laboratories to support them in this process, by providing different tools and methods adapted to their needs. To integrate eco-innovation in these new spaces, tools must answer to differents criteria. The only tool proposed by the literature is the guidelines tool but by confronting it with current practices, limits of this tool and of the innovation laboratory practices were defined. In this paper we will question and deconstruct guidelines tool in order to propose a new vision of it through identification of eco-innovation attributes.
