This year’s theme was “Lean & Green”, exploring how sustainability/ “green” can co-exists and support Lean/ Operational Excellence? Does green make business sense? Does it help the organization become better internally and in the eyes of the customer?

 Lean to Green Manufacturing......

The leading similarity between the benefits of lean and the benefits of green is waste, and so it makes perfect sense that in order to achieve higher levels of environmental performance, your organization must first adopt the principles and practices of lean manufacturing and then superimpose Green thinking on Lean thinking!
