If you are looking for a brief answer: YES.
If you are looking for reasons to support your answer, here are some:
- Reduced Resource Use
While redesigning, re-engineering, restructuring and retooling processes and operations to make them more sustainable socially and environmentally, many leading facilities have figured out that using green processes leads to lower resource use as well. Many facilities are researching combined outputs of lean processes and green processes for their efficiency.
When the results do come, it’ll be a matter of time only before every process turn lean and green.
- Reduced Waste
The concept of reusing waste in other processes in the manufacturing cycle is not new and is emphasized further by green processes. Reduced amount of waste helps in waste management and disposal while reusing waste of a process in another increases revenues as well.
- Reduced Emissions
Using green raw material is a basic tenet of employing green processes. Green materials are raw materials which have a lower carbon footprint and lower emission rate when put in the process of manufacturing. Reduced emissions not only help the environment but also the corporate social responsibility an organization has gets fulfilled.
- The Industry is Listening
A rising number of organizations are noticing that reducing resource use, reducing your carbon footprint and reusing otherwise considered waste materials in other stages of manufacturing, not only improves the balance sheets but also boosts employee morale and workplace positivity and fosters better public relations.
This has further strengthened the rising tide of going green. Trust us, this trend is not stopping anytime soon.
