Sustainability in
manufacturing

Sustainability has become a critical success factor for global manufacturers.

Now more than ever organisations are increasingly active in starting or accelerating new sustainable approaches. We are empowering action by providing new knowledge, tools and expert support. We are building a community to catalyse the immediate change to sustainability in manufacturing that is demanded by business leaders and society.

For the past 10 years the Centre for Industrial Sustainability at the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM) has been at the forefront of developing tools and approaches to help manufacturers profit from the opportunities sustainability delivers. Together we can use these tools to effect immediate sustainable change often using existing technology with little or no capital investment.

HOW WE CAN HELP

Some of the challenges we can help organisations with include:

  • Increasing operational efficiency and reducing costs and waste.
  • Building resilience to ensure long-term business viability.
  • Creating competitive advantage through rethinking business models.
  • Developing cross organisational alignment and buy-in to sustainable change.
  • Circularity and Circular Thinking: working across organisations and the wider ecosystem.
  • Understanding the future industrial system and visions of future industry.
  • Building the business case for and financing sustainability projects.

We are highly motivated to have a global impact on sustainability and we have a deep understanding of the solutions to the key challenges we all face.

To enable the wave of change that is sweeping over us we have founded – the Sustainability Association – training programs, leadership collaborations and future insights for the new generation of sustainability manufacturers.
