Abstract
Green production systems requires efficient production and low use of resources such as

energy, material etc. To achieve this, there is a need for further development of

continuous improvement tools in the “lean and green” area. This work deals with

environmental value stream mapping (Environmental-VSM), which has been applied in

two case studies at Volvo Penta Vara and Volvo Construction Equipment Braås. In the

performed studies Environmental-VSM, as described by the US-Environmental Protection

Agency, has been extended by the introduction of a loss model to show environmental

losses. The combination of methods provides the user with hands-on tools supporting

strategic as well as operational management. Examples of practical improvement actions

that were found include reduction of energy use trough minimising idling losses and floor

space as well as reduced waste flow through lowered packaging material usage. (Less)
