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.
(Kamar et.al. 2010) Achieving the goal of sustainability in architecture and construction is becoming more emphasized these days. Sustainable architecture has become a serious challenge irrespective of several theories that have been found unpractical. Looking at past routes of vernacular architecture has solved some sustainable issues appearing after the industrial revolution. In result, new solutions should be proposed to benefit from technology in addition to interaction with environment.
INTRODUCTION: Friendly environment is become important for enterprises because of public awareness, government regulations, society and competitors. For this purpose green supply chain process is performing according to standards and rules. Customers are also focusing to purchase those goods which are friendly for environment. Now a days green supply chain management is popular, companies are evaluating their process and convert them in green supply chain. Due to environmental changes and effects of pollution government make tighten rule form companies and industries to remove carbon and defuses.
Keitsch, Martina. 2012. “Sustainable Architecture, Design and Housing.” Sustainable Development 20(3): 141-145. doi: 10.1002/sd.1530. Main Argument: The main argument of this text is that when designing and planning new sustainable architectural designs, key components must be understood and carefully thought about to ensure harmful impacts to the environment are minimised. The following 3 related ideas support this argument: • The idea of just creating a space where it is “green” and is environmentally friendly is not the only thing needed to create sustainable living.
Today, understanding this balance between the natural, social, and political systems in regards to the environment is important in becoming an effective region to lead in environmental conservation, nonprofit organizations, and the scientific community. Furthermore, we must work together in order to motivate ourselves to work together in order achieve a healthy and environmentally friendly way of living. We can do this by taking initiatives to develop our community to incorporate new, sustainable ideas to deal with environmental concerns. Additionally, if these ideas are implemented, we can allow ourselves to facilitate a collective action as a social responsibility in encouraging greener urban lifestyles in the Twin Ports area, where we can become a strong and active community linked to sustainable living. The first step in adopting a greener urban lifestyle lies in the Twin Ports area planning specific goals that have long-lasting visions anchored to progressive plans toward sustainable living.

Drew Dodson SHM 352.001 Design Term Paper May 21, 2014 Environmentally preferable products (EPP) and their services offer society much more benefit to our safety and health than their competition. These products allow us to build environmentally friendly architecture while still offering safe stability in its construction. EPP offers reduced effects on human health by looking for cleaner alternative methods as their more harmful counterparts. These products have a wide scope of use including products from manufacturing and distribution, to maintenance and disposal. The goal of EPP products is to reduce consumption of material while building new and improved architecture by recycling earth’s natural resources.
Sustainability is one of the most controversial topics throughout the history, and as our society develop, we realize that being able to be sustainable is essential to survival of our race. The book Taking Sides: Clashing Views in Sustainability is a collection of articles on different side of various issues related to sustainability. In the book, Issue 8 discusses the ability of technology to deliver sustainability, and issue 16 and 17 discusses the sustainability of food and energy. While issue 16 and 17 are well-presented, the arguments in issue 8 are not very strong. Issue 8 Can Technology Deliver Global Sustainability?
In the midst of a global ecological crisis, architects and designers are relentlessly pursing design strategies that manage to mitigate the toxic byproducts of our consumption habits, while maximizing our use of sustainable energy sources. Meeting these challenges means more deeply integrating green technologies like wind and solar power, natural climate controls and space age materials into the building processes (Macher). Another reason that green... ... middle of paper ... ...een behavior on the part of occupants is as important, if not more important for certain aspects. As a generation, individuals need to be more aware of green energy and how to save more energy and money by living green. As a society individuals need to make green energy laws at the same time improve the economy.
