The Fabricators & Manufacturers Association (FMA) has invited manufacturing executives to join its new Green Manufacturer Network, which the group describes as “a professional organization of individual members working together to drive the transition toward environmentally friendly manufacturing.”
The mission of the Green Manufacturer Network is to be the principal resource to advance sustainable manufacturing, said Edward Youdell, president and CEO of the FMA. By joining this network, executives throughout the entire supply chain can learn practical strategies and affordable measures to run sustainable operations, as well as discover new business opportunities in the green marketplace.
Members of the group receive discounts on conferences, workshops, and webinars; event announcements and topical discussions; as well as access to sustainability resources.
In a recent FMA member survey, 51% of respondents indicated their company has a committed sustainability program with dedicated staff and performance metrics, said Jim Warren, FMA membership and education director. An additional 38% of respondents indicated their company was moving toward full commitment to sustainable practices. They ve recognized that being green directly impacts the bottom line in a positive way. Further, good environmental stewardship sends a powerful message to current and potential customers of one s dedication to sustainability in their communities.
