Environmental Practices at Work: Manufacturing

Environmental sustainability is about designing and implementing practices and processes within a workplace that do not waste or exhaust natural resources or cause ecological damage. It not only minimises an organisation’s environmental footprint – there is also potential for significant bottom-line gains. This resource focuses on environmental sustainability in manufacturing and light industry, where technology and innovation have contributed significantly greater efficiency in both resource use and productivity. Areas covered include identifying resources and environmental issues; compliance with regulations; and improving resource efficiency. Award-winning Melbourne-based printing company, Vega Press, is an excellent case study and a range of its initiatives are examined. Further expert comment is offered by an industry trainer from Kangan Institute’s Centre for Competitive Operations. It is an outstanding resource for senior and post-secondary students in various disciplines who are examining contemporary issues in today’s workplace.
