Atlanta, GA (December 5, 2016)—Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, has selected Chainalytics as a recipient of an SDCE Green Supply Chain Award for 2016. “We are proud to accept this award for our work with the client,” said Chainalytics Senior Packaging Engineer Rich Lindgren. “It’s really an interesting story–how this large consumer brands frozen food firm managed to balance packaging costs and efficiencies with measurable supply chain sustainability results.”
This year’s ninth-annual awards recognize small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain. “That’s exactly what our client did,” Lindgren continued. “They leveraged their packaging solution to remove 16.5 million sq. ft. corrugated and paperboard, 567 tons of wood pallets, 1.8 million lbs. of CO2 emissions from truck hauls and 708 annual trailer shipments from their supply chain. That’s a record any company can be proud of–and one that also translates to significant business savings.”
“Our honorees are showing that the bottom line and corporate responsibility are not mutually exclusive,” said Ronnie Garrett, editor of 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. Sustainability has, for these companies, become a key part of their supply chain strategies.”
“Our goal is to honor those companies in our annual awards and credit them with the recognition they deserve,” Garrett added. “They have recognized the need for supply chain sustainability, something that’s not always easy to do.”
