A new report about sustainable manufacturing from ARC Advisory Group, Dedham, Mass., could help you navigate your next career move. In today's engineering workplace, it pays to be knowledgeable about green initiatives that can save your company money while also helping the environment. The new document summarizes environmental and business benefits that can be gained by implementing sustainable manufacturing practices.

According to the report, in addition to reducing a manufacturer's environmental footprint, these practices can help reduce energy and raw material costs, reduce risk, reduce costs associated with future carbon or other emissions taxes, and improve public image. Sustainable Manufacturing: Remaking Today's Manufacturing Enterprise for Tomorrow's Economy is directed at executives in both the process and discrete manufacturing industries. Design engineers will also find the report useful, especially those aiming to move into management positions. Readers can download a free copy of the 40-page report at www.arcweb.com/res/forumorl/.
