See what leaders at these businesses have to say about Lean and Green:

  • “This whole project when it came about was real exciting for us. . . We’d done Lean things before, but we never really looked at the environmental side of it. And so, with Ecology there and with their technical support, we were able to… get the environmental benefit out of the (project) … Having the support of Ecology, being right there with us, working the problems out, was tremendous.”
    - John Earl, environmental manager, Canyon Creek Cabinets
  • “It is amazing how closely waste in lean and product value streams aligns with (environmental) waste... This was a successful project with tremendous waste and cost savings.”
    - Greg Konkol, CEO of Accra-Fab, Inc.
  • "This program has proven financially and ecologically successful, and I am proud of the work we have collectively achieved."
