Case Study in Lean Manufacturing and Environment

Case Study in Lean Manufacturing and Environment

Many organizations have found that implementing lean concepts and tools results in improvements in environmental performance, even when lean activities were not initiated for environmental reasons since environmental savings are often not part of the “business case” for lean improvement activities.    However, organizations implementing lean do not necessarily quantify the environmental performance gains associated with their lean initiatives.    Here is a web site with examples of case studies showing environmental benefits that result from lean implementation.
