Introduction: In this report we tried to explain the relationship between lean manufacturing practices environmental management practices and environmental performance, business performance outcomes (e.g., market and financial performance). The hypothesized relationships of this model are tested with data collected from 309 international manufacturing firms (IMSSIV) by using AMOS. There is an increasing social demand for environmental sustainability and organizations recognize that it has implications for its competitive positions and are striving to inculcate environmental friendly practices. So in this report we try to explain how lean manufacturing practices can achieve this and what impact it has on business performance. Lean manufacturing is a collection of tactical methods that helps in eliminating non-value added activities (waste) for delivering quality products with least cost at a greater efficiency.

Major Barriers of Implementing Green Management and ISO in Business Sector of Hong Kong To achieve and maintain competitive advantage firms need to be appropriately positioned with their industry. “Going Green” becomes an important issue for business to ensure its marketing position and a source of competitive advantage.

ARGUMENT: This essay focuses on the need to frame climate change as an issue of sustainable development, and to elucidate the effects this has on climate governance. Framing climate change as a primarily environmental issue at a global level denies its complexities (Tosam and Mbih 2015: 788).

This is achieved through the integration of economic, social and environmental issues with the aim of creating sustainable growth to meet current generational needs and protect resources for future generations (Bruntland Report 1987). By framing climate change as an issue
