Synergistic effects within Green Lean : Experiences from the manufacturing industry (English)
Abstract [en]

It is becoming increasingly more important to be competitive. Lean is an already established concept that makes companies more efficient and resourceefficient. Environmental issues are becoming increasingly more important and more stakeholders require organizations to work actively with environmental issues. The purpose of this paper is to investigate what synergistic effects are experienced by the combination of lean and environmental work in the manufacturing industry by interpreting experiences and driving forces within companies. Qualitative method has been used to answer the purpose and the research questions. An institutional perspective has been taken into account when examining the driving forces for implementation. Semi-structured interviews were used to collect data from six different companies of varying size within the manufacturing industry in Wermland.

Synergistic effects have been clearly perceived in two areas, ‘waste and wastereducing technologies’ and ‘staff and organization.’ It was found that the variation of internal and external driving forces affects the extent to which businesses experience synergies. The variation of internal and external drivers also shows different levels of integration of lean and environmental work, which ultimately affect how strong synergistic effects are experienced.
