The Consortium on Green Design and Manufacturing (CGDM) was
formed in 1993 to encourage multidisciplinary research and education on environmental
management and pollution prevention issues in critical industries. Faculty and students in
Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Architecture, the School of Public Health,
and the Haas School of Business, together with their industrial and public sector
colleagues strive to meet the following objectives:
|Form multidisciplinary research agendas among engineering, management, public health,
architecture and policy faculty members to address the inherently cross-disciplinary
issues of environmental management and pollution prevention.|
|Integrate green design and manufacturing issues into the curriculum so that students in
engineering, business, and energy and resources are exposed to and learn approaches for
solving problems in these areas.|
|Establish collaborative research with industry partners in the critical commercial
sectors of electronics and computers, aerospace, automotive, automotive and construction.|
|Establish channels of support and information exchange with governmental agencies at the
city, regional, state and federal levels.|
|Serve as a facilitator for dissemination of information on green design and
manufacturing for businesses, governmental agencies, and the non-profit sector.|
