The Cleveland County Conservation District is proud to host the University of Oklahoma's Lean Institute's Lean and Green Program. This program adapts tools from the Lean Process Improvement program to reduce environmental waste in the workplace. Participants re-learn the concept of waste, helping organizations identify ways to become more competitive and profitable through green initiatives including; energy efficiency, water conservation, garbage and material waste, optimizing transportation, and emission reduction. Lean and Green shows the potential profitability in green practices in the same way that Lean does; through greater efficiency.
The program includes three full days of classroom training, at monthly intervals, with private coaching support from an instructor between classroom sessions. Participants will complete a real world green business project at their business as part of the training. This intensive training and hands-on exercies will train each participant how to identify waste and lead improvement strategies effectively. Lean & Green is funded by a grant from the Oklahoma Department of Commerce and is available at no cost to the participants. For more information, click HERE to view an overview of the program.
