Frost & Sullivan, recently concluded its 5th edition of the 'Green Manufacturing Excellence Awards and Summit (GMEA&S)’ at Mumbai. GMEA through this mission lays emphasis on identifying long-term sustainability risks, and an organizational approach to address these issues.
Mumbai/India – Various metrics ranging from sustainable strategy to safety systems, from environmental management to social accountability, are tracked through this platform. The day started with the Green Manufacturing Excellence Summit where organizations that have worked on their sustainability journey gathered under one roof. Best practices from companies across industries that participated in the award platform were shared by notable industry stalwarts that play an integral role in the field of sustainability in India. The focus through the day was on aligning sustainability initiatives with the business model and creating sustainable “smart” business models. The common message brought to the fore by these companies was that to create success stories it is imperative that financial inclusion be one of the cornerstones of the language of sustainability.
This year also saw the introduction of the Safety Excellence Model that took companies through a detailed safety assessment built on five broad parameters (Safety Management Systems, Process Safety, Equipment Safety, Employee Safety, and Occupational Health). These five parameters were further divided into sub-parameters that evaluate and map their journey from a reactive to a proactive safety approach. A detailed feedback on the maturity of a company’s safety system was shared in addition to the GMEA report. The highest scoring companies were recognized for ‘Excellence in Safety’ during the 2014 Green Manufacturing Excellence Awards banquet.
