Our 3E Approach

Manufacturers around the globe who grasp the importance of sustainable business practices are beginning to experience financial and environmental benefits. Following economically-sound manufacturing processes minimize negative impacts on the environment while conserving natural resources and energy.

C.H. Reed developed our own 3E Initiative: Energy, Environment, & Ergonomics. By focusing on improving these three areas of manufacturing plants, the 3E Initiative can be used as a tool to refine the effectiveness of a plant’s process while reducing their footprint, improving product quality, reducing energy costs, and to help maintain worker safety.

C.H. Reed also partnered with Energy, Materials & Sustainability Consulting, LLC (EMS) to completed a 20-hour sustainability training course taught by EMS founder, Warren Weaver. Our goal is to expand our customer’s capabilities using the 3E Initiative while providing insightful ideas and solutions that help them meet their goals.

EMS is a local Pennsylvania-based consultancy with vast knowledge and expertise in sustainability & “green”, management systems, energy efficiency & conservation audits, material efficiency, clean & lean manufacturing, regulatory compliance, and training services in all these topics.
