“A growing number of companies are treating “sustainability” as an important objective in their strategy and operations to increase growth and global competitiveness. This trend has reached well beyond the small niche of those who traditionally positioned themselves as “green,” and now includes prominent businesses across diverse industrial sectors. In many cases, these efforts are having significant results (EPA, USA). This is nothing new to Sri Lankan manufacturing sector. The forerunners are already yielding the benefits.”
The aim of this event is to bring together academia, researchers, practitioners and policy makers to share their practices, experiences and research outcomes in the area of Sustainable Manufacturing.
