Jim Hanley, Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Manager, discusses the sustainability agenda at Terex, a worldwide manufacturer of heavy equipment such as cranes, material handlers, and paving equipment. Lean operations and By-Product Synergy NW's Innovative Material Waste Exchange Program, among others, help Terex's carbon reduction (water, energy and waste use). By enlisting the help of Scope 5, a sustainability data management software, Terex puts their carbon reduction results in terms cost-conscious executives can understand: economically. Learning to talk about sustainability in terms of cost structure helps their board understand the benefits of sustainability, too, especially when customer mandate is driven by speed and safety of products. Watch to learn more about how Hanley was able to keep sustainability a priority at Terex.
