The Green Supply Chain Award recognizes 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 supply chains. The award also recognizes providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.

“This year’s 13th-annual award recognizes small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain. From software solutions to transportation management systems to several other initiatives designed to reduce carbon footprint and improve the re-use of materials, sustainability continues to rank as a key component to a stronger, safer and more efficient supply chain.” - Marina Mayer, Editor-in-chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics

The 2020 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Green Supply Chain Award follows global recognitions to the company’s efforts to minimize our environmental impact across our operations, and efforts to extend environmental standards throughout our supply chain.
