Early this year I wrote a white paper for Aptean titled Top 5 Benefits From Incorporating Factory Manufacturing Sustainability Initiatives. This 50,000-foot overview on the benefits of sustainable practices delineated five (of course) reasons why manufacturers should consider implementing sustainability initiatives in the production process.
Here’s my introduction:
Sustainability is often pigeonholed as a purely “green” initiative. Manufacturers feel pushed to implement sustainable processes to comply with governing and other regulatory bodies and to appear a good corporate citizen. However, sustainability offers reliable short- and long-term cost savings that benefit your bottom line, irrespective of current financial responsibilities or the current political climate.
This white paper will look at five benefits that can result from incorporating sustainability initiatives into your production processes. It will also look at the way these “Top 5” benefits work together to improve your overall efficiency, enhance your factory’s productivity, and boost the “green” in your bottom line, while strengthening your standing as an environmentally responsible corporate citizen.
