CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Dec 5, 2016) - ArrowStream, Inc., ("ArrowStream") a supply chain innovator that combines expertise in data science and analytics to improve the way supply chains perform, today announced that Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive's user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, has selected ArrowStream as a recipient of the 2016 SDCE Green Supply Chain Award. This year's ninth-annual award recognizes small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.
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.
"Our honorees are showing that the bottom line and corporate responsibility are not mutually exclusive," says 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 adds. "They have recognized the need for supply chain sustainability, something that's not always easy to do."
