As Intel grows, the importance of the environment snaps out at us. You better have your culture right when you’re growing this fast or you’ll have problems.
—Larry Borgman, director,Environmental, Health, and Safety, Intel Corporation
EACH of the 20 Lean and Green companies has a unique company culture, just as your organization has. I witnessed repeatedly that the fastest way to make an organization Lean and Green is to adapt proven environmental steps to the existing organizational, regional, or industry culture—thereby minimizing resistance to change. Employees’ messages will be heard and understood when framed in the culture known by their peers and management.
