The Impact of Lean Manufacturing Practices on Green Sustainability: The Case of Abdulghani Company


This study examines the impact of lean manufacturing practices on green sustainability in the context of Abdulghani Company. The study used a sample size of 180 respondents to collect data on the implementation of lean practices and the company's green sustainability performance. The findings indicate that the implementation of lean practices has a significant positive impact on green sustainability performance. Specifically, lean practices such as waste reduction, energy conservation, and process improvement contribute to a reduction in the company's environmental impact and improved environmental sustainability. The study recommends that companies adopt lean practices as a means of achieving both operational excellence and sustainable development.
