Utilizing green practices to generate value, cut wastes, and avoid costs

This full-day, interactive workshop reveals the hidden and costly wastes often overlooked in organizations. By using a real facility facing real challenges, participants will gain hands on training in a simple and systematic process for eliminating waste that can protect margins while increasing profitability and competitiveness. By focusing on the reduction and avoidance of costs, as seen through an interactive tour of KIK Corporation, this workshop will provide basic tools to quickly realize both short-term and long-term benefits that yield immediate savings while putting in place commonsense structures to ensure future savings by moving towards sustainability.

The practical and hands-on design of this workshop is based on familiar Lean Thinking to make previously ignored wastes visible by applying today’s valuable environmental spot light. The step-by-step process used describes how to identify, measure, and move toward the elimination of the 7 key environmental wastes of Energy, Water, Materials, Garbage, Transportation, Emissions and Biodiversity which consume significant resources in most companies and now must be addressed.
