Abstract [en]

Increasing focus on sustainability in society forces industrial companies to consider environmental impacts resulting from their activities. Unfortunately, research within the “environmental” domain has to a high degree evolved separately from the “manufacturing” domain, leading to poor understanding regarding how to manage environmental issues in a manufacturing context. To reduce this flaw, this paper takes the starting point in a manufacturing strategy perspective and analyses implications occurring from the inclusion of environmental issues in industrial companies. The paper suggests that concern for environmental issues influence more or less all of the manufacturing strategy decision criteria. Environmental concern may e.g. affect the decision on manufacturing process choice (e.g. new product technology may require new types of manufacturing processes) or on process technology (e.g. new manufacturing equipment are needed). Therefore, the paper concludes that it is paramount to consider environmental issues when formulating and effectuating the manufacturing strategy.
