Manufacturing’s Commitment to Sustainability
The National Association of Manufacturers has joined with the Department of Energy’s (DOE) nonpartisan Better Plants Program earlier this year to launch the Sustainability in Manufacturing Partnership. Through this partnership, manufacturers can collaborate with the DOE in exploring emerging sustainability technologies, addressing future energy problems and shining a spotlight on how sustainability is vital to manufacturing in America.
By facilitating the sharing of sustainability success stories like those included here, the program is helping manufacturers gain greater visibility into the sustainability best practices of industry peers. It is also helping Americans gain greater insight into the environmental commitment of a sector that is keeping its promises. The NAM recently surveyed its members on their sustainability practices, and across the board, manufacturers are demonstrating that sustainability has become mainstream across all industrial sectors.
