    Start with ISO 26000, the recently adopted International Organization for Standardization Guidance for Social Responsibility, then consider your organization’s value proposition and core values, and the 7 classic sources of waste as defined in lean thinking:

    1. Overproduction
    2. Unnecessary transportation
    3. Excess inventory
    4. Excess motion
    5. Defects (resulting in scrap or rework)
    6. Over-processing (doing unnecessary work)
    7. Waiting (wasted time)

    The synergies between lean and green should become obvious.

    It will be appropriate if you state India lagging in Lean and Sigma. I do not think China and other Asia countries are slow in the lean sigma champaign.

    IBM proposed a new term “Green Sigma” years ago to intergrate Lean Sigma methodogy with green technology.
