Lean to Green - Use Energy Stream Mapping to Reduce your Carbon Footprint.
Lean Thinking refers to the use of systematic methods to reduce costs by eliminating wastes and non-value added activities, while delivering what the customer wants, on time.
Lean Thinking was originally developed by the Toyota Motor Company in Japan based on concepts pioneered by Henry Ford, and is now being applied beyond mass production, into service-oriented businesses, agencies, and offices.
Traditional improvements may have yielded reductions in our energy footprint but that is the primary focus of this programme. Remember, 'If you do not need to make it, then you will not consume any energy and you do not need to consider dumping or recycling'.
This programme will outline the concepts of Lean Thinking. It will provide a methodology to review and assess your energy streams, understand the critical value-add activities, identify and eliminate the non value-add items and develop a sustainable plan for the future. Significant short term and long term reductions in energy costs and environmental benefits can be realised.
This programme can also act as a catalyst to develop a culture of Continuous Improvement. The development of competencies as well as the nurturing of a culture improvement are also key elements for long term success and should be factored into the strategy.

Who Should Attend?
This programme is recommended for managers at all levels, from supervisors, project and middle managers to top executives. It will provide concise and comprehensive concepts that can be applied immediately, but also can provide a strategy for larger scale implementation. Programmes can be tailored to suit individual requirements.
There are two options regarding the rollout of this programme.
Option 1 - One Day Training
This option covers the educational content. It ensures the competencies are developed in a core group of people to start the review of the Energy Streams. It also provides the competencies to investigate breakthrough solutions to eliminate and reduce waste.
This option covers educational support plus on-site implementation. As part of the Training programme, a roadmap will be developed to complete Energy Value Stream Mapping, Data Collection, Pareto Review. A follow up session (approx 2 days) after 1-2 months will be conducted to review data and develop solutions to eliminate/reduce waste. An implementation plan will be developed to pilot options. A final follow up session (approx 1 day) after aonther month will be carried out to review results and areas for future focus.
All programmes can be taylored to meet the needs of the client.
