The Green Factory: Creating Lean and Sustainable Manufacturing
tells the story of how GKN, a major British multinational corporation with operations in more than 30 countries, developed and implemented a Lean and Green Business Model (L&GBM) in two of its automotive facilities in Brazil. It provides practical insight into how GKN was able to develop and deploy Lean and Green in a manner that resulted in environmental and cost benefits in the automotive facilities that operated in Brazil’s high-inflation environment.
Detailing proven concepts and sustainable models derived from the authors’ first-hand experiences, the book supplies information against the backdrop of two of GKN’s automotive manufacturing facilities. The authors take an inside-out approach, describing the real issues Environmental Health & Safety professionals face when implementing sustainable manufacturing policies.
