Manufacturing Sustainability Benchmarks


Manufacturing sustainability benchmarks from MPI’s Manufacturing Study include a rating of the importance of sustainability to plant success, greenhouse gas emissions reductions, use of various recycling and reuse programs, energy management programs, renewable energies, formal green corporate programs, green products, and measures for green components and materials.

These manufacturing sustainability benchmarks will give you a performance advantage by helping you design and implement waste- and energy-reduction strategies that the earth, your customers, and your investors value.
