*********************************

This timely work examines one core corporate function that has a profound
and direct impact on corporate environmental performance: manufacturing and
operations. This area has been of concern in recent years to researchers and
practitioners in fields ranging from the social and natural sciences to
management and technical engineering. The book reflects this diversity with
global contributions on topics such as design for the environment, total
quality environmental management, green supply chains, reverse logistics,
environmental management systems and standards, industrial ecology,
closed-loop manufacturing, life-cycle management, pollution prevention (P2),
environmental technologies and energy efficiency.

The aim and scope of "Greener Manufacturing and Operations" is to capture
state-of-the-art and future practices in environmental manufacturing and
operations practices and issues in one concise volume. The book is therefore
a fluid mix of case studies, empirical research and applied theoretical
works incorporating both conceptual ideas whose time will come to practical
applications that managers and practitioners can apply immediately.
Comprehensive in its coverage of the key issues, contributions range from a
focus on the internal operations of a single function within an organisation
to a consideration of industrial manufacturing practices at a macro-economic
level. A number of levels of decision-making are also represented: from
long-term strategic issues such as supply chain design, to traditional
short-term operations decision-making and planning issues such as production
planning. Many of the principles developed and presented here can also be
extended to the more general process management of service organisations.

The book is organised into four major sections: Operations Strategy and
Policy; Manufacturing and Operations Practice; Tools for Managing Greener
Manufacturing and Operations; and, finally, Case Studies. 

"Greener Manufacturing and Operations" is an essential aid for managers,
engineers, students, researchers and consultants wishing to understand the
various issues, principles and tools for managing the operations and
manufacturing function in a more environmentally benign and sustainable
manner.



"'Greener Manufacturing and Operations' provides a thoughtful and practical
look at what it is about environmental issues that is important to
corporations: environmental considerations pervade the organisation, they
represent real survival value for the company and they give companies the
opportunity to do the right thing. Professor Sarkis has assembled an
international roster of contributors who delve into the issues from many
perspectives. Required reading for practitioners, policy-makers and
researchers."
Kurt Fischer, Co-founder, The Greening of Industry Network


"...corporations face some significant unfolding challenges in proceeding
with state-of-the-art developments so well described in this book."
Roger E. Kasperson, Executive Director, Stockholm Environment Institute
