Delivering Manufacturing Innovation

Sustainable Manufacturing

As defined by the U.S. Department of Commerce, sustainable manufacturing is “the creation of manufactured products that use processes that minimize negative environmental impacts; conserve energy and natural resources; are safe for employees, communities, and consumers; and are economically sound.”

For many companies in the manufacturing sector, instituting more sustainable processes has proven to be a daunting task—strategically, tactically, and economically. All too often, manufacturers quickly find themselves mired by the process of assessing environmental performances, analyzing assessment data, identifying areas of improvement, and implementing manufacturing changes.

At the NCDMM, we recognize the need to focus on the most efficient use of limited resources while ensuring compliance to evolving environmental health and safety regulations and minimizing the energy intensity and environmental impact of manufactured components.

Our sustainable manufacturing services employ the latest available manufacturing technology to ensure energy conservation and environmental stewardship goals are achieved. We provide the tools for assessing and improving the manufacturing sustainability of a specific process, manufacturing cell, facility, or supply chain. By partnering with the NCDMM, our customers can expect to improve overall operational effectiveness and profitability by evaluating manufacturing sustainability on the basis of the People, Profit, and Planet.
