Lean and Green: Developing Environmental Management Processes for Industry

The intern will be engaged in developing a Lean and Green road map that establishes the current environmental performance of the study facility, identifies opportunities for improvement, and provides a systematic process in order to achieve sustainability goals. By engaging in the development of Current and Future Value Stream maps, applying relevant process management tools, and studying the impacts of soft skills on implementing and maintaining an environmental management system, the intern will identify operational management improvements at the study facility. This process will allow for identification of best practices in implementing Lean and Green processes across various industries.
