Cleaner Production (CP) is recognised as one of the best practice in dealing with environmental issues. The execution of CP can be realised by integrating the environmental management system with the technology through a proper translational process ranging from low or no cost solutions to high cost of investment. From the literature, eight keys element of the translational process have been identified. Discussion and exploration on each element were found to have direct and indirect effects of each other’s in the entire manufacturing process. Further examination showed that the proper execution of translational process have a major impact in improving environmental performance while creating more sustainable production systems. The findings from this paper can serve as a guideline for the manufacturers to develop an effective’s actions and strategies for the successful execution of CP and thus meet the requirements of global environmental management practice.
