    Abstract

    The importance of performance measurement and indicators in realizing energy-efficient and, in broader perspective, sustainable manufacturing has been noticed and realized by the industry and academia. Although several frameworks for sustainability performance measurement and reporting exist, those focus mainly on corporate level and hence fail to provide adequate support for factory planning and management. This paper and the related research projects are motivated by this need to provide manufacturing companies with sustainability performance indicators that better support the realization of sustainable and energy-efficient manufacturing. The proposed paper aims to set the stage and to present the initial steps for identifying or developing sustainability key performance indicators that cover the three aspects of sustainability, economic, social, and environmental, and are linked to the improvement possibilities and measures at shop-floor level. The proposed paper contributes to the conference and the workshop by discussing performance indicators for planning and management of sustainable and energy-efficient factories. The paper presents guidelines and research needs for academia, while the related research projects intend to provide the industry with useful sustainability performance indicators for factory planning and management.
