GLRPPR Sector Resource: Let "Lean" Guide You to "Green"
Let "Lean" Guide You to "Green"
In this guest column for Environmental Leader, Cetherine Greener discusses how sustainability is really something that many organizations have been practicing for a long time in the form of "lean" manufacturing (process improvement methodology).
