Abstract: 
Maintenance activities have a direct effect on the environment that surround the facility where they are executed. There are three aspects in which maintenance strategies contribute to a facility foot print in the environment: 1) Resources needed 2) Efficiency of the equipment 3) Waste introduced into the ambient as part of maintenance activities. In order to be a sustainable maintenance department, the first and third aspects must be reduced or closely controlled and aspect two should be maximized. There are a number of techniques and actions ready to help us achieve asset efficiency and reliability but the real question is, if we are willing to commit to be environmentally responsible in our maintenance activities; do we understand the environmental impact of keeping our assets reliable? Join this webcast for a discussion about how making cultural changes, all the way to adapting new technologies, organizations can start making changes that will endure economical trending, while positively impacting all our surroundings.
