Green Value Stream Mapping – A CAMT Webinar
Traditional Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a powerful tool that utilizes cross-functional teams to measure and identify areas for improvement within the production and information flows of an operation, establish a vision for the future, and develop a plan to achieve that vision. But traditional VSMs can overlook important metrics such as raw materials used, pollution outputs, and flows of information to environmental regulatory agencies. Green Value Stream Mapping combines the powerful VSM techniques to root out operational and process wastes with measurement of environmental wastes.
Rising energy costs, resource shortages, customer sustainability demands – challenges like these are transforming the world in which we do business and require manufacturers to use innovative resources in order to remain profitable, competitive, and sustainable. At CAMT we offer an integrated approach to sustainability by combining best practices of Lean, Green and Clean disciplines. Please join us for a CAMT webinar on how to use Green Value Stream Mapping techniques to identify and reduce all forms of operational, environmental and energy waste.
This webinar will answer key questions, such as:
- What is environmental waste?
- Why should I identify environmental waste in my process?
- How will I know when I see environmental waste?
- Where should I look for environmental waste?
- How do I measure the environmental impacts of a process?
- Where can I find environmentally preferable process options?
As an added benefit, Sharen Stamp of Western Metals Recycling (http://www.wmrecycling.com) will take a few minutes to share how your company can earn money and help the environment by selling scrap metal. Sharen will discuss the types of metals needed, as well as the process and benefits of recycling scrap metal.
