This study aims to identify and reduce waste in PT Rajapaksi Adya Perkasa manufacturing company. The analysis uses the concept of green productivity with Green Value Stream Mapping as the analysis model. Through the GVSM current state, this study calculates the amount of green waste in the production line including seven green waste. The result of this study shows an improvement to minimize the waste that occurs through the GVSM future state. GVSM technique increases the green productivity value from 1.12 to 1.81.
