Title: Lessons from benchmarking environmental performance at automobile assembly plants
Author: Rothenberg, Sandra; Schenck, Brian; Maxwell, James
Abstract: In the past, environmental pressures on manufacturing plants arose mainly from government mandates. Citizens interested in protecting themselves from visible types of pollution (fish kills, dirty smoke) turned to government for protection. Compliance with applicable regulations was considered "good" environmental performance. In the last 15-20 years, the types and complexity of environmental concerns have grown. Pollution concerns have expanded to include less visible sources of pollution. General concern for visible smoke has given way to ozone-forming CFC's and concern with visible "dirty" water now includes toxic metal content.
