Abstract

This paper presents an extension of the tool of process mapping that aims to capture data about the environmentally harmful wastes that are present within an organization’s processes. By incorporating the capture and analysis of ‘green wastes’ alongside other process data this tool aims to integrate the continuous improvement of green initiatives alongside continuous improvement initiatives. Green initiatives then cease to be ‘something else’ that needs to be done in the organisation, or are tasks that are done by ‘someone else’ but become embedded in the everyday management of the organisation and become part of the organisational improvement philosophy and practice.
