<p>CHANDLER, Ariz., <span class="xn-chron">Feb. 16</span> /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  MESA (Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Assoc.) has announced the launch of Eco-efficiency in Manufacturing, a major study of the strategies and approaches being used to support sustainability initiatives.  The study is open to all manufacturers around the globe in all product sectors.  The study will culminate in a report to the industry to be presented at MESA's North American conference on <span class="xn-chron">June 21</span>, Dearborn, MI. Interested manufacturing personnel can take the online survey at: <a href="http://www.surveymethods.com/EndUser.aspx?DFFB9784D89C8A85">http://www.surveymethods.com/EndUser.aspx?DFFB9784D89C8A85</a></p>
<p/>
<p>MESA, with members in 78 countries around the world, remains committed to its mission to share manufacturing's best practices.  Inspired by the growing global focus on climate change and carbon emissions, this study will explore the green and sustainability initiatives now underway in the manufacturing sector.</p>
<p/>
<p>The study seeks to report on the current state of manufacturing including: the leadership and information technology systems that companies are using to drive high performance, eco-efficient operations: identifying the change drivers, as well as, the barriers encountered for those companies making a green transformation and qualifying and quantifying the initiatives underway and resources being applied to improve supply chain, product lifecycle, and asset management practices.</p>
<p/>
<p>Participants are assured of complete anonymity.  All responses will be aggregated in the published data and reports and no individual or company names will be included.  Each respondent will gain access to the survey database, thus giving them an opportunity to compare and benchmark against companies with similar profiles.</p>
