sustainable production systems.
Industries play a crucial role in greening the economy. They are prime manufacturers of goods and services that satisfy human needs. Societies also depend on industrial systems as they, in the end, have direct power to make decisions regarding what, how, and where to produce and distribute their goods. These decisions are not only important to an individual industry but also the society at large because they impact the key parameters of a green economy including carbon emissions, resource efficiency and human welfare. However, today’s industrial production systems still possess unsustainable characteristics especially within developing economies.
By in large, manufacturing follows a linear process that takes raw materials from the environment and turns them into new products, which are then discarded into the environment at the end of their life-cycle. At the same time, continuing reliance on the shrinking resource base increases risks for price volatility and disruption of resource supply, which affects not only resource-intensive businesses but the society as a whole.
How can industries become greener, and lessen their environmental footprint while continuing to grow and deliver goods and services in society?
