Abstract: Considering the globalization of the economy and other associated trends, therefore it require a much broader conception of productivity and a fuller appreciation of the changing dynamics of the determinants involved in the process of its improvement. The increased competitiveness, internationalization and sophistication of markets, the globalization of manufacturing and the increased concern about social and ecological issues make productivity improvement more important. Productivity improvement through better utilization of the energy, materials, water, solvents, etc. is now seen as an effective tool in preventing pollution at source. Productivity improvement must therefore take into full consideration the impact of the production, distribution, consumption and disposition processes on the environment. While meeting the customer needs, products and services supplied and the processes used to produce and distribute them must have minimum negative impact on the physical environment. This study is therefore, mainly motivated by the quest to answer the question: How does GP enhance overall productivity and environmental performance?
