The Lean & Green Award confirms our current good results but, at the same time, brings us opportunities to improve our future developments in processes and products also in terms of eco-sustainability. The key factors of success are the thorough involvement of our employees and the daily nurture of Kaizen culture towards excellence.

With the award we are now able to show our customers that we are among the bests in comparisons to our competitors. In addition we were able to identify some important aspects for improvement which were shown in the feedback. We already included them in our improvement program.

Knowledge transfer across industries and exchange with top companies are crucial success factors. The "Lean & Green Management Award" recognizes the most successful approaches in the field of lean management and resource efficiency and the results are shared with interested companies. The big question here is how to continue reducing all kinds of waste within the organization.

However, resource efficiency is not just about saving money. It is also about seizing opportunities to develop advanced business models, particularly in combination with Industry 4.0 technologies.
