Green is smart business – today and for the future.

Green Manufacturing is part of a continuous improvement strategy helping manufacturers improve their productivity, profitability and competitiveness. Green seamlessly integrates with Lean Manufacturing practices to optimize processes resulting in an improved environment, worker health and safety, and energy performance.

Generating waste costs money. You pay for it three times over – when you buy it, when you process it and when you dispose of it. NEPIRC’s Green Manufacturing program will show you how improved environmental performance and increased profitability go hand in hand. Using environmental best practices to eliminate the “other wastes” is the next logical step in the Lean transformation. The benefits of Green Manufacturing include:

  • Reduced scrap and rework
  • Reduced hazardous wastes
  • Improved environmental performance
  • Prevention of compliance and liability costs
  • Reduced quantity of raw materials, resources and energy required to realize your product.
