Visiting Committee on Advanced Technology, 106-107 [E9-31152]

Download as PDF 106 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 1 / Monday, January 4, 2010 / Notices their efforts to enhance natural resource efficiency, minimize waste, and compete in world markets, public and private sector stakeholders require a better collective understanding of these challenges and ways these can be addressed. Thus, there is a need for more in-depth analyses that can educate these stakeholders on where significant challenges and opportunities for enhanced profitability lie. Next Step: MAS will launch a ‘‘Sustainable Manufacturing Sector Focus Study’’ series aimed at informing public and private sector stakeholders about the specific sustainability-related challenges, ongoing efforts, and unrealized opportunities that exist in specific U.S. manufacturing sectors. These studies would be designed to provide clarity on the specific hurdles U.S. firms are facing in their efforts to become more resource efficient, what firms are doing to overcome these hurdles, potential cost-saving and valueadding opportunities that exist in a selected sector, and unexplored areas of public-private collaboration.
