Lean and green management along the food life cycle
Poster (konferens), 2015

As industries´ decisions give environmental consequences both upstream and downstream the value chain, there is need of a tool for valuation of decisions and actions. The lean concept is one of those actions that have been used for a long time by several industries, while green lean is a relatively new concept. The question is: How green is lean along the life cycle? In our research project we have developed an actor based LCA methodology for the food industry, and will evaluate the environmental consequences of applying the lean concept along the food life cycle in a case study of pork. This paper presents scenarios on lean farming, lean industry, and lean life cycle, as well as gives ideas for lean collaboration along the value chain.
