Feedback: Lean & Green Workshop at Telefonica (O2) Headquarters – July 2012

Lean Thinking experts S A Partners are leading the way in recognising the synergy between the lean movement for process improvement and the environmentally-driven green movement.

On 3rd July 2012, S A  Partners held a highly successful event at the O2 offices in Slough which is a green concept building. The event aimed to raise general awareness of the benefits of combining lean and green.

For most companies, those individuals responsible for lean improvement and those responsible for green improvement are different groups, often residing in different departments.

Lean practitioners often have limited exposure to and knowledge or visibility of the organisation’s environmental aspirations and activities. Similarly, environmentalists often have little or no appreciation of the organisation’s lean journey.

This workshop highlighted the benefits of integrating the organisation’s lean and green efforts. Drawing on examples of leading edge companies who have successfully integrated their lean and green activities and who have reduced costs and boosted profitability by doing to.

The event was highly interactive. Here’s what some of the delegates said about the event:

‘Really thought-provoking………has given me two big pointers to go chase in our business now’  Chris Tye, Tarmac

‘I had a very interesting day and the simulation game was a fantastic eyeopener’  David Watts, Energy Saving Trust
