WAYNE, PA--(Marketwired - Dec 14, 2016) - Elemica, the leading Supply Chain Operating Network for the process industries, announces winning the Supply & Demand Chain Executive Green Supply Chain Award for 2016. Elemica was chosen for helping clients improve and achieve measurable sustainability goals through the automation of manual processes and the optimization of freight. Automating supply chain business processes reduces paper and removes inefficiencies, which saves trees and other resources. Elemica's integrated cloud-based logistics solutions enable shippers and carriers to lower their emissions and fuel consumption through collaboration on shipments to find and fill capacity; by avoiding disruptions, penalties and idling; and by optimizing loading and unloading times.
"The Elemica team is extremely honored to be the recipient of this prestigious award for eight consecutive years," said Ed Rusch, Vice President of Global Marketing at Elemica. "It's a real privilege to help our clients meet their green goals through better supply chain performance -- returning lower operating expenses and improved working capital all while driving sustainability across their community of trading partners."
"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. They have recognized the need for supply chain sustainability, something that's not always easy to do."
This year's awards recognize 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 also distinguishes 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 2016 Green Supply Chain Awards honor companies taking green initiatives in the areas of Sourcing/Procurement, Fulfillment/Logistics, Operations, Product Lifecycle Management, and other areas of the supply chain. Winners are listed in the December 2016 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
