Guide to Sustainability: Industrial Manufacturing
In the United States alone, manufacturing accounts for almost a quarter (23%) of direct carbon emissions.
As major emitters of greenhouse gasses, industrial and manufacturing facilities can play a meaningful role in combating climate change by committing to reducing their emissions and energy use. Additionally, as the main contributor to carbon emissions, this industry is subject to the increased risk associated with reliance on fuel and emission-heavy processes as regulators crack down on high emitters. Manufacturers can also turn sustainability into a major value differentiator and trends in the global industrial complex reveal that many corporations are retooling for a new era in which sustainability is a key component of long-term resilience planning. Sustainability ultimately involves the management of greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, waste management, green product development, and water conservation.
