Green Manufacturing Day

The International Trade Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce has proposed to organize a "Green Manufacturing Day," aimed at enhancing public-private cooperation and interaction in the field of sustainable manufacturing. The Department of Commerce wants to hear from small businesses concerning areas of discussion at the proposed "Green Manufacturing Day."

Sustainable manufacturing has gained attention in the manufacturing industry as its cost-effectiveness and profitability have become realized.

To promote sustainable manufacturing, increases in public-private interaction can help to both identify opportunities and issues faced by manufacturers in pursuing this production as well as promote capacity building among individual firms and industry sectors as a whole.

The purpose of the proposed day will be to:

(1) Disseminate and promote best business practices in sustainable manufacturing,

(2) assist small and medium sized enterprises in identifying and implementing practical sustainable manufacturing solutions,

(3) provide information on relevant emerging technologies,

(4) educate participants on Federal Government efforts to promote sustainable manufacturing, and

(5) provide information on international sustainable manufacturing initiatives, projects, and opportunities.

In preparation for this proposed event, which is tentatively scheduled for September 2007, the Department of Commerce is requesting feedback from the public on the following: (1) topic areas of interest to U.S. businesses with regard to sustainable manufacturing, (2) types of information U.S. businesses seek in these topic areas including specific feedback on the following--

  • Sustainable manufacturing implementation issues affecting small and medium-sized enterprises.
  • Emerging technologies for clean manufacturing that are technologically proven, but have not yet been widely recognized.
  • Federal government practices or voluntary programs that have been particularly useful in promoting clean or sustainable manufacturing or business practices.

    THE DEADLINE IS PAST...but watch for updates from the US Department of Commerce:
