The NACFAM Sustainability Framework Model
This Model was created by NACFAM's Vice President for Sustainable Manufacturing, Jeffrey Mittelstadt. It can be used by companies of all sizes to prioritize sustainable manufacturing projects, to analyze financial and environmental impacts of multiple combinations of potential projects, and allows companies to assess multiple environmental categories simultaneously. The Model was developed from actual sustainable manufacturing projects focused on energy efficiency, chemical management, materials management including related energy use and upstream environmental impacts, and other issue areas NACFAM thought would be important for users. It is financially-based, yet kept as simple as possible so companies of all sizes can use it with minimal data to prioritize potential projects to focus resources, time and money, for further exploration.
