With energy and raw material costs are high and rising, understanding the environmental impact of a product is proving to be an important tool for manufacturers. Brite Green associate consultant Michael Hill explains how using product footprinting can reduce costs, risk and environmental impacts at the same time in his easy guide to product assessment.

With manufacturers facing rising raw material and energy costs, increasing environmental legislation, and more focus from investors and customers on environmental issues, the business case to improve resource efficiency and environmental management is strong. Using a product lifecycle approach will identify new opportunities to reduce costs and risks, and improved inventory management will ensure that manufacturers are leaner and more responsive to customer demands.
