Lean manufacturing is a traditional term used to describe a way of being more efficient, reducing wastage from operations, and eventually, improving company financials. That concept has now evolved into green manufacturing, where not only are the bare minimum resources used, but all the operations are done in the most eco-friendly manner possible.

For that to happen, all stakeholders involved will have to consider the magnitude of industrial impact on climate change and work towards mitigating risks.
