Sustainable lean manufacturing processes

Closely related to sustainable development, lean manufacturing doesn’t just maximise productivity. Actively strengthening sustainable growth, minimising generated waste, and reducing the use of raw materials positively impact upon our sustainability targets across the board. For example, we’ve considerably lowered our carbon emissions by reducing our number of factory units from 3 to 2.
