Market forces that include public pressure, government regulations and corporate social responsibility initiatives are driving enterprises to view "green" and "sustainability" as necessary components of their supply chain strategies. At the same time, supply chain as a function has emerged as a focal point of sustainability initiatives within the enterprise.
"Leading companies are recognizing sustainability as a potential competitive advantage in a time of supply constraints and demand volatility," said Barry Hochfelder, editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "The 2011 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Green Supply Chain Awards highlight the role of the supply chain as a key enabler of sustainability."
