DiCentral is proud to announce that the company has been selected by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine as one of this year's recipients of the coveted Supply & Demand Chain Executive 2014 Green Supply Chain Award, highlighting companies that stand out for their projects to incorporate sustainability objectives into their own supply chains or to enable sustainability in their customers' supply chains.
Utilizing renewable energy, minimizing waste and maximizing facility and solutions lifespans are all components that leading companies in supply chain increasingly enforce. This year's seventh annual awards recognize small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.
"Leading companies recognize that initiating sustainable practices in their supply chain processes is key towards driving their competitive edge in today's still-volatile economy," says Barry Hochfelder, editor, 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. The increased adoption of green best practices and strategies will only continue to grow."
Growing consumer awareness and demand, government regulations and corporate business responsibility are among a few of the many drivers leading more companies today to incorporate green practices within their business.
"Sustainability and global consciousness are everyone's responsibilities," says Thuy Mai, CEO for DiCentral. "To be recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive as a Green Supply Chain Leader for the second year in a row is truly rewarding and a testament to the efforts put forth by the entire DiCentral team and our strong network of blue chip clients and partners. We look forward to continuing this healthy and important trend as we close out 2014 and move well into the future."
