Applying Lean Six Sigma to the Environment

Applying Lean and Six Sigma to Businesses and Organizations to Improve the Environment

EPA’s Lean and Environment Initiative developed a series of toolkits in 2006 that offer practical techniques and strategies to help lean, environmental, and other specialists identify and eliminate waste. These toolkits draw heavily from the experience of organizations that have pioneered integrated approaches to lean and environmental decision-making, while delivering world class performance, exerting market leadership, and achieving bottom line results.

Written for lean operational managers, environmental practitioners, and lean practitioners, the hope is that these toolkits will help organizations to identify and eliminate environmental wastes using their existing process improvement program. If they don’t have one already, these toolkits will assist with setting up a new program. It can help align your environmental management systems goals and objectives as a routine part of your lean initiatives and business decisions.
