Manufacturing Sustainability - Beyond "Green"

Balancing the needs of diverse stakeholders can seem impossible – regulators (and our own sense of stewardship) demand reduced impact on our environment; shareholders require that we protect their investment; and customers won’t accept reduced quality or increased costs. Individual initiatives seem to offer a path to improvement on a specific front – energy reduction, water optimization, or emission/effluent reductions – but understanding whether all other priorities are balanced is difficult at best.

Based on our own experience as a GE business – with aggressive goals for reducing energy and water consumption – we know that for gains to be sustainable, they must be led and supported by an information strategy. Intelligent Platforms automation and software are used in both utility and industrial infrastructure to deliver the precise control needed to optimize energy and water usage – as well as the data needed to understand the operational factors that can drive consumption above target.
