77% of manufacturing executives believe energy prices will rise significantly next year, and that energy efficiency practices need to be boosted – but how many know what actions to take to green their manufacturing operations? It was with this in mind that EFT asked respondents to pinpoint the real green manufacturing initiatives and technology they're investing in, and what the key results and ROI have been.

The timely report revealed that a full 95% of respondents believe that green manufacturing will continue to expand, 43% say that environmental initiatives are improving their efficiency and product quality, and a surprising 66% believe there to be a market for more expensive and greener products in their industry.
