Avendra Claims Green Supply Chain Award
Avendra, North America’s leading procurement services provider serving the hospitality industry, announced today it has been named a recipient of the SDCE Green Supply Chain Award for 2016. The award is presented by Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation.
The Green Supply Chain Award recognizes companies who are making 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 position as supply chain and hospitality procurement experts allows us to innovate and collaborate in meaningful ways. Therefore, in addition to always looking for ways to operate our own business in a more sustainable manner, we also strive to support the sustainability and social responsibility initiatives of our customers while working with our suppliers to balance environmental, social and economic considerations in their businesses and supply chains,” said Hamzah Abu-Ragheb, Sustainability Manager, Avendra. “It is an honor to be recognized by SDCE for our commitment to sustainability and for the work we are doing to help our customers and suppliers operate their businesses in more sustainable ways.”
This year’s ninth-annual awards recognize small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.
