In mid-November, Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine announced their green award winners for 2013. Companies were selected based on their inculcation of sustainability into their supply chain strategy. These companies have demonstrated 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 magazine’s editorial staff selected winners based on the following three criteria:
- Clarity and Content of the goals and strategy
- The extent of the steps being taken
- The impact of the results to date
- Form and presentation of the information submitted
Typical sustainability success factors like use of renewable energy, waste minimization, and maximizing facility and solutions lifespans were defining features of the winning companies.
