GreenGopher℠ – a practical web-resource for lean and green business practices, announces its support of the EcoLogo™ program of qualifying green industrial products.
Companies of all sizes are improving fundamental manufacturing and business activities by considering their environmental impact — and related bottom-line effects. They are reducing their cost of goods sold thereby increasing their competitiveness by engaging in such environmental performance-enhancing activities as:
- Reducing the use of hazardous materials,
- Lowering regulatory risks as well as training, material handling, and other extra expenses associated with hazardous materials,
- Reducing the obsolescence and waste of maintenance, repair and operating (MRO) materials through enhanced sourcing,
- Increasing revenues by converting wastes to by-products, and
