Are Lean and Green Programs Synergistic? [PDF]
Abstract: Since Lean and Green Programs each require management commitment and employee involvement, identification and reduction of organizational wastes, and continuously improving organizations, intuition suggests implementing one program may actually make implementing the second program less arduous. A study of known Lean companies shows that many Green elements are included in their Lean Programs. Evidence supports the conclusion that a significant synergy exists between Lean and Green Programs, suggesting that firms pursuing Leanness will be more successful if they also pursue Green objectives.

Green Suppliers Network: Lean Met Green and Got Hitched
Abstract: An increasing number of manufacturing enterprises realize the value to their stakeholders from committing to a "lean and clean" approach. This article shares the experience of several companies participating in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) collaborative Green Suppliers Network program with the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)-Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) and related initiatives. Though it targets small- and medium-sized U.S. companies, GSN provides a useful model for larger organiza­tions as well.(PDF)

Parallel Models for Lean and Green Operations [PDF]
Abstract: Many leading companies have implemented Lean Manufacturing Programs which yield increased efficiency, reduced costs, improved customer response time, and more. Others have adopted “Green” Programs resulting in reduced energy consumption, waste generation, and hazardous materials usage. Models for both Lean and Green systems all include management systems, waste identification, and implementation of waste reducing techniques (WRT) to achieve desired business results. Studying known Lean companies, we confirmed that strength of management system correlates with WRT implementation which correlates with business results for both Lean and Green Programs. Our results indicate that Lean and Green Programs lead to improved business results.
