Lean & Clean

Enviro-Stewards reduces resource consumption and process inefficiencies through an integrated approach designed to deliver you results.

Our Approach

To maximize effectiveness, Enviro-Stewards oversees the clean portion of the study, and a lean manufacturing specialist subcontractor conducts the lean portion of the assessment.

Enviro-Stewards follows its 5-step pollution prevention approach for clean assessment:

1. Who are your champions?
     ·     A team is assembled with representatives typically from upper management, engineering, QA/QC,
           plant supervision, and operators.

2. What are your primary wastes?
     ·     Quantify & prioritize wastes through measurement, observation, and facility records.

3. Why are your wastes generated?
     ·     Identifying root causes as to why waste is generated in the first place.

4. Where can they be reduced?
     ·     Design and perform financial & technical analysis of alternatives.

5. When should change be implemented?
     ·     Prepare an implementation plan that categorizes each opportunity within an immediate, 
           medium-term, or long-term time frame.

Access Incentives

  • Canada’s National Resource Council (NRC) Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) offers funding for lean and clean assessments.


Address Problem Drivers

  • Integrated assessment using pollution prevention combined with lean manufacturing principles to economize processes, thus reducing resource consumption and process inefficiencies.
  • A cleaner production presents much less risk (if any) to the environment.
  • Pollution prevention and lean opportunities increase worker health & safety.
