The 2014 Green Supply Chain Awards recognize companies making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy, and are working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and/or supply chains, in the areas of Sourcing/Procurement, Fulfillment/Logistics, Operations, Product Lifecycle Management, and other areas of the supply chain. The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.
The awards highlight companies that are making sustainability a core part of the businesses and supply chain strategies. And they have the results to show for it. Almost 200 submissions were received through an open nomination process.
Submissions were judged based on the clarity and content of the goals and strategy, the extent of the steps being taken, the impact of the results to date and projected results , and the form and presentation of the information submitted. Using renewable energy, minimizing waste and maximizing facility and solutions lifespan are all components that leading companies in supply chain increasingly enforce. This year's seventh-annual awards recognize small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.
