Kenco Named As 2014 Green Supply Chain Award Winner By Supply & Demand Chain
Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine, the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, this week announced this year’s recognized honorees of its annual “Supply & Demand Chain Executive Green Supply Chain Awards.”
Utilizing 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.
“Leading companies recognize that initiating sustainable practices in their supply chain processes is key towards driving their competitive edge in today’s still-volatile economy,” said Barry Hochfelder, Editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “This has been increasingly evident over the past few years and is relatively clear with the large number of entries we received this year—almost 200—for our annual green awards. The increased adoption of green best practices and strategies will only continue to grow.”
Selection Criteria: Green Supply Chain Award Winners:
- What makes the nominee a “green” practitioner in supply chain?
- How is the nominee implementing a green or sustainable supply chain strategy within its own operations?
- How is the nominee helping its customers realize and meet their own green or sustainable supply chain goals?
- What, if any, are the key metrics that the nominee is using to measure its success in executing on the green aspects of its supply chain?
The full listing of the 2014 Green Supply Chain Award honorees will be available on the Supply & Demand Chain Executive Website at http://www.sdcexec.com. An expanded listing will appear in the December 2014 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine and online thereafter.
