                         however, a significant gap exists-in sustainability management 
                         systems. We considered this gap as well as the fact that 
                         organizations mainly face difficulties in managing sustainability 
                         using integrated management systems. Here, we propose an 
                         innovative model to improve corporate sustainability aimed at 
                         cleaner production; we develop this model by integrating quality, 
                         environmental, social responsibility, and occupational health and 
                         safety management systems with the lean manufacturing system. The 
                         proposed model is expected to aid organizations in improving 
                         corporate sustainability in a structured manner. This research 
                         introduces the Lean-Integrated Management System for 
                         Sustainability Improvement (LIMSSI), which is based on the 
                         rational use of resources and energy while engaging and empowering 
                         people. The LIMSSI provides an innovative description of 
                         correlations of the quality, environmental, occupational health 
                         and safety, and social responsibility requirements with the 
                         principles and tools of lean manufacturing; it also includes a 
                         description of their integration to create synergies. It was 
                         structured considering the difficulties faced by organizations in 
                         performing sustainability-improvement activities, and aim to avoid 
                         loss of organizational efficiency due to waste, duplication, and 
                         increments of bureaucratic processes. The LIMSSI is expected to 
                         improve corporate sustainability performance and thereby render 
                         companies more sustainable and competitive.",
