Offers the first book-length collection of environmental concerns from a manufacturer’s perspective Provides practical, in-depth descriptions of environmental, and energy issues -- including the application of lean principles to these issues Illustrates concepts with real world examples
No manufacturer can afford to ignore the pressing environmental issues of today. To do so puts both their profit line and their legacy at risk. As part of the Enterprise Excellence Series, this book brings together articles and case studies covering environmental, and energy issues that were previously published in the Association of Manufacturing Excellence’s Target Magazine. It covers both areas of moral responsibility, as well as legal and economic considerations. Chapters are organized in three areas: Protecting the Environment, Using Energy Wisely, and EPA Case Studies, making it easy to track down the information desire.
