The Benefits of Green Manufacturing

Eyefortransport has released the findings of a survey on the subject of Green manufacturing. Respondents were 300 senior manufacturing and supply chain executives from companies of all sectors and sizes in the US. The full report is here and it's worth a look.

The chart that stood out for me is the views on the benefits of Green manufacturing. A total of 95% of respondents believed that Green manufacturing would increase and expand, but despite these times of economic slowdown, cost reduction was the fourth-placed benefit - corporate strategy, customer demands and public reputation were seen as more important. In addition, 71% said the cost of going Green is getting lower and the potential profits increasing.


Clearly a very positive movement to Green manufacturing in the US and plenty of opportunity for those software and IT services players that specialise in the market.
