In this article Charles Cohen of Prime Devices describes the reduced carbon foot that his organisation’s lean initiative produced as an ‘unexpected windfall’.
Cohen asserts that lean manufacturing can not only cut the carbon footprint of a plant or company, but of an entire industry.
Evidence about the size of the opportunity in integrating lean and green is accumulating. The publication of a new and comprehensive book on this subject is both topical and timely. Creating a Lean & Green Business System is due to be published later this month. For a sneak overview of the book’s insights the link below details and event run by one of the authors that is due to take place 11th April at Greenwich University.
