Why, you ask? Because being green not only demonstrates social responsibility, but it also reduces the amount—and subsequently, the cost—of energy required, avoids wasted resources, and allows companies to run much leaner production operations.
Doing one’s job with a “green” mind-set is no longer the nirvana of idealists. Whether we like it or not, “greening” manufacturing processes has become nothing short of a mandate. In our industry, time is money, and we need to keep moving and keep operations flowing smoothly, uninterrupted, and in a potentially precarious financial situation.
