"How to Operate Cleaner Production Centers"



The UN has a program on Cleaner Production that supports 25+ national CP technical assistance centers around the world.  They have learned a lot over 15 years doing so and have LOTS of case studies how to dramatically improve production efficiency and reduce waste.

 

They have now put on line a guidance manual and training kit on how to create and run a Cleaner Production / Pollution Prevention technical assistance center for industry.  It’s quite interesting and obviously is a major *benchmark* for management of such programs as it reflects input from technical assistance providers around the world.

Personally I think the UN approach is way too mechanical and focused on facility assessments – it greatly lacks social marketing strategies - , but they have always put engineers in charge of their programs so that’s what they like to do.
