Carbon Process Management (CPM) is a management process which promotes environmental effectiveness in organizations. It is designed to maximize efficiencies in the consumption of resources that contribute to climate change. When implemented effectively, CPM techniques can reduce operating costs, realizing gains in brand equity, competitive advantage and stakeholder value. Initially introduced by First Carbon Solutions, CPM uses Japanese kaizen philosophy which continuously improves workplace practices to reduce wastage, this is combined business process management (BPM) which increases efficiency. Governments who resorts to legal mechanisms and regulation to deal with the risks of climate change, techniques such as CPM are directed towards a corporate approach in helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions.[1][2][3][4]
