WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

“The Lean & Green Program offered by CME has driven the creation of IPCO’s Environmental Vision and Pillars. The services offered in the program facilitated development of our environmental plan by identifying topics to examine, people to involve and the steps required to create a workable Environmental Vision that can be incorporated into strategic planning goals and employee engagement. The development of KPIs to achieve the Vision expanded beyond energy consumption considerations, and have incorporated plant efficiencies, product development, sourced materials and business partnerships. This would not have been as quickly or smoothly achieved without the program’s assistance and guidance.”
