The lean movement was modeled after Toyota, and we often hear catch phrases like lean and green, but there is often misunderstanding.  A common assumption is that lean is a specific toolkit to accomplish some goal such as efficiency.  The Toyota Production System (TPS) is coupled with The Toyota Way and is a total management system to achieve any challenging goals.  In this talk I illustrate now TPS can attack waste, including waste that harms the environment, and the broader Toyota Way, through continuous improvement and respect for people, builds the culture and skill set for creative people to tackle the challenges of achieving a net positive impact on the environment.
