Embracing sustainable and green principles in manufacturing is more than simply the right thing to do. Such practices are enabling organizations to become more efficient, competitive, and profitable. Not only are there financial benefits for implementing environmentally conscious improvements, choosing to not take action puts factories at risk of being shut down due to stricter enforcement of environmental regulations.
