Willow Grove, PA, November 09, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- For the fourth year in a row, Source One Management Services has been awarded Supply and Demand Chain Executive (SDCE)’s Green Award. As a premier magazine for supply management professionals, SDCE annually recognizes leading companies or providers of supply chain solutions, working to achieve significant sustainability goals in a number of areas including, Sourcing/ Procurement, Fulfillment/Logistics, Operations, and Product Lifecycle Management.
“We are constantly looking for innovative ways to enhance supply chain operations for our clients, so we are honored to be recognized with the Green Supply Chain Award,” said Steve Belli, CEO of Source One. “Green initiatives are a growing priority for many of our clients and our goal is to not only make it possible, but also affordable.”
With an increasingly environmentally conscious consumer base, more organizations are opting for sustainable alternatives when it comes to supply chain operations. Simultaneously, there are organizations who, while interested in green solutions, lack the market insight to implement these initiatives – and those who operate under the misconception that sustainable options are more expensive. For decades Source One has challenged that notion, providing sustainable solutions to clients at comparable or lower costs.
A prime example of this is Source One’s work with a high energy storage company who sought support for more affordably sourcing the material needed to make their eco-friendly product. Source One’s analysts helped simplify the reengineering process, presenting real time market intelligence on the alternative materials available and the suppliers who met their raw material and manufacturing requirements. As a result, the new materials reduced the product’s overall environmental impact, including eliminating the need to undertake strip mining and helped reinforce the client’s goal of delivering sustainable energy by sourcing environmentally materials to do so.
“As spend management consultants, we often see that businesses don’t believe that ‘low costs’ and ‘sustainable’ can go hand in hand,” explains Source One’s VP of Operations, William Dorn. “A core function to our approach with green-minded clients is to assist them in challenging this misconception by providing data that supports sustainable sourcing. Not only do we identify affordable eco-friendly options, but provide the information necessary to make the decision-making process easier and more enticing toward sustainable sourcing.”
