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. Added value gets created for businesses employing such practices in their infrastructures, as awareness of the global warming crisis keeps becoming increasingly widespread. Through our market studies during our nascent days, we found out that there are quite a few business benefits of building a sustainable infrastructure. Here are a few of them:
Countering climate change is the need of the hour. The concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is at a record high and it continues to rise. While emissions saw a slight decline during the pandemic, they are on their way back to pre-pandemic levels. According to a United Nations report, the world is set to see its warmest five years on record, and this trend is likely to continue in the future. There’s a lot of work that remains to be done to reach our goal of keeping the global temperature increase below 2°C or at 1.5°C. We need rapid and impactful changes in tandem with economic or industrial development. This makes sustainable infrastructure crucial.
