Launching Lean and Sustainable U.S. Consortium

We are in the process of identifying companies who are interested in a Lean and Sustainable consortium located in the United States (U.S.).

The Lean and Sustainable Consortium is a selective group of global and local industry leaders who are currently engaged in leading continuous improvement and / or environmental sustainability in their respective businesses. They often have a passion for linking lean with sustainability, and strive to help their organizations make holistic decisions based on the triple bottom line (people, planet, and profit).

We come together regularly (at least four times a year) to share knowledge about creating a lean and sustainable business. In addition to these facilitated meetings, we have a strong online presence to enable continuous learning, as well as frequent “Gemba” exchanges to share insights. We focus on building close relationships between the group, but we also welcome new members to help keep the ideas fresh and relevant to current issues and business conditions.

Membership is by organization, building valuable relationships through both the network’s individual representatives and the member organizations.

The consortium will be setup similar to the UK Lean and Sustainable Consortium, but will conduct Gemba exchanges in strategic locations within the US, based on member organization proximity.

Here are the potential locations we are considering (will change based on actual member organization participation)



Membership in the consortium provides you the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded people and organisations in a safe, engaging and open environment.
