- Swanport Café, Beijing
This seminar introduces how energy intensive companies could significantly drive their energy, water, and raw materials productivity through management improvements, within a “quick-win” time frameand with minimal technical upgrades or CAPEX investments. A few case studies will be discussed, demonstrating McKinsey’s approach on Resources Productive Operations, which tackles Technical System, Management Infrastructure and Mindset & Behavior issues in factories or plants to enable them reduce cost, improve competitiveness and at the same time, contribute to solve environmental and resource scarcity dilemma. The speaker would also like to stimulate discussions with the audience on how this fits into the country’s overall transformation into a sustainable economy.
