John Wilkerson, a Supply Chain, Strategic Sourcing Executive and Sustainability, Environmental Champion, has authored the First Edition of the Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM) Professional Development Series, the North American Sourcing Manager's Green Supply Chain Measurement Guide and Green Lexicon.

Atlanta, GA, November 18, 2009 --( Bellwether Services, an award winning and internationally recognized strategic management consultancy firm advising leading companies and government agencies on issues of strategy, operations, technology, and sustainability, is the architect of an innovative tactical Green Strategic Sourcing Methodology.

This methodology was developed in the form of a pilot program in support of carbon footprint reduction which is highlighted in the U.S. House Bill 2454 - American Clean Energy & Security Act and Federal Government Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance Executive Order. H.R. 2454 bill and Federal Leadership Executive Order have specific 2020 goals that industry and government organizations must comply. Sample goals that will be reached include:

· 30% reduction in vehicle fleet petroleum use by 2020
· 26% improvement in water efficiency by 2020
· 50% recycling and waste diversion by 2015

"Our tactical green supply chain pilot program offers procurement, purchasing, sourcing professionals a 4 step, 12 week carbon footprint reduction methodology,” says John Wilkerson, CPSM, SSMBB.

“This low risk, lost cost approach was developed to ensure corporate supply chain, procurement, and EHS managers can create a customized sustainability implementation plan.”

This pilot program is in response to the U.S. H.R. 2454 - American Clean Energy & Security Act of 2009 (ACES) and Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance Executive Order. Both Federal mandates require U.S. firms to reduce their Carbon Footprint by 17% in 2020.

If implemented as prescribed, this 4 step Green Supply Chain Pilot Program could reduce the Corporate Supply Chain carbon footprint in less than 12 weeks.
