Abstract: During the industrial revolution, environmental issues were not addressed when designing and manufacturing the products. Environmental conscious manufacturing (ECM) is concerned with developing methods for manufacturing products, processes and operations, etc., to satisfy the requirements of environmental standards. Authors present an important review of the development of research; related to environmental performance and provide a review of published work in this area. However, that survey covers the research papers published from 1995 to 2013. This paper investigates the literature by classifying published references into four major categories: design for environment, life cycle analysis, green supply chain management and environmental management system and discusses the various limitations of the systems. It also focuses on environmental management system (EMS) for achieving environmental performance in manufacturing industries.
