Atlanta, GA (December 11, 2017)—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 2017.
“We feel honored to be recognized for this award involving recent project work with our client,” said Chainalytics Senior Packaging Engineer Rich Lindgren. “It’s always satisfying when our packaging solutions allow a company to implement sustainability initiatives and improvements which reduce its carbon footprint while simultaneously adding value across its entire supply chain.”
This year’s 10th-annual awards recognize small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.
“During our partnership with a Global Safety Products Manufacturing Company, Chainalytics engaged and implemented several projects whose solutions resulted in substantial annualized savings across four plants and two countries,” Lindgren explains. “Most notably, however, the solutions implemented resulted in a 28,000 sq. ft. reduction in corrugated and paperboard materials and the removal of 48 tons of wood pallets. This reduction of handling materials amounted to an overall reduction of 112,000 lbs of CO2 emissions previously occurring through truck hauls. The sustainability and green initiatives accomplished throughout this partnership have allowed the client organization to implement positive change and continuous improvement across their entire supply chain.”
“Honorees for this year’s award demonstrate that corporate social responsibility is a business imperative that transcends the company and extends throughout the supply chain, involving suppliers and customers,” says John R. Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The number of entries only increase year over year, demonstrating how critical sustainability initiatives are within companies.”
“We congratulate this year’s honorees for their commitment to sustainability and recognize their tremendous achievements,” Yuva adds. “Our honorees serve as role models for supply chains globally to expand their CSR reach and impact.”
