Lokpriya M. Gaikwad, Dr. Vivek Sunnapwar, Bhaskar Bhandarkar


As the manufacturing sector to play a bigger role in the country’s economy, there should be a growth while mitigating the environmental concerns for which the manufacturing sector must use energy and resources efficiently and minimize the generation of waste. Green Producing (GM) Industrial Activity is currently the necessity of the time associate degreed less an empty catchword.. In this research paper, a conceptual framework has been presented for the manufacturing organization to implement green manufacturing which assists the operation manager to create their process and product more sustainable. Thus, a resultant framework is based on an inclusive and methodical analysis of the literature to describe the dynamic process of green energy, green products, and green processes in manufacturing organizations. As the research raises theoretical and managerial questions as well as scope for future research on this important topic, the assessment and the conceptual framework might be useful for both academicians and managerial level.
