PRESS RELEASE: WILLOW GROVE, PA (11/14/2013) – Source One Management Services, LLC has won its second consecutive Green Supply Chain Award from Supply and Demand Chain Executive magazine. SDCE recognized Source One as a supply chain and procurement solution provider that is delivering sustainable supply chain solutions to leading companies.
“We at Source One are thrilled to have won the Green Supply Chain Award for two years running, especially given the increased focus and competition in the sustainable space as more of our mid-size and Fortune 500 clients are looking to become ‘green-focused’ with their supply chains,” said Steve Belli, Chief Executive Officer of Source One Management Services, LLC.
Sustainability has often run counter to cost savings, but Source One helps bring the two concepts together by enabling its clients that desire sustainable supply chains to understand that eco-friendly and green products aren’t always more expensive. In a recent case, Source One worked with a global manufacturer to overhaul its sourcing processes and supplier management programs to focus on sustainability. Source One’s oversight encompassed all of the client’s categories, and changes included the implementation of RoHS-compliant computers, manufacturing process redesigns to eliminate wastage and toxic solvents, and fuel efficiency programs for the client’s trucking fleet. Source One then coordinated the suppliers so that the client could monitor adherence to laws and ethical standards while benchmarking their green performance on a global scale. Each measure not only improved the client’s environmental practices but also lowered costs, producing savings.
“Our clients see Source One as experts in identifying green alternatives to the products and services they need. Our services go beyond simple procurement to help them educate their employees and institute the management practices that ensure compliance with their new, environmentally friendly policies,” said Source One Vice President of Operations, William Dorn.
Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s Green Supply Chain Awards recognize those companies that have leveraged a variety of sustainable approaches – including technology, strategies, and solutions – that companies are employing, and spotlights concrete results that many of these leaders witness due to their sustainable efforts. The awards also recognize providers of green supply chain solutions who assist their customers in achieving their sustainability goals.
