Philadelphia, PA, December 07, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Recognized as a leading procurement services provider for delivering sustainable, environmentally-friendly cost-reduction solutions, Source One Management Services, LLC wins the 2016 Supply and Demand Chain Executive (SDCE) Magazine’s Green Supply Chain Award. Each year, SDCE honors organizations advancing the role of sustainability in supply chain operations. For the fifth consecutive year, Source One receives the accolade for helping forward-thinking enterprises achieve their environmentally-conscious supply management goals through proven strategic sourcing and cost reduction processes.
“We’re absolutely honored to receive the SDCE Green Supply Chain Award, as it represents our commitment and success in making our clients’ sustainability goals a reality,” says William Dorn, VP of Operations. “As a procurement services firm, we provide the subject matter expertise and manpower to enable our clients to achieve their sourcing and cost reduction goals. In many cases, we find that companies are usually under the impression that sustainable sourcing can’t also be low cost. We provide the market intelligence and supply base options that not only ‘prove them wrong’ from a price perspective, but also enable long-term operational benefits.”
Going green is a growing priority for industry-leading organizations as consumers are increasingly concerned with the ethical and sustainable sourcing practices of the brands they purchase. The challenge for many organizations, however, is a lack of market insight and in-house resources to identify and implement green supply base initiatives. In many cases, companies even turn away from exploring green initiatives altogether due to the misconception that going green also implies higher costs. This inaccurate understanding of what it takes to “green” supply chain operations is what inspires Source One’s procurement experts who aim to identify cost-saving, green alternative solutions for clients.
Source One’s supply management experts are again recognized with the 2016 Green Supply Chain Award for their work incorporating sustainable supply chain practices for a number of clients. Among the highlights this year is their success in identifying supply base opportunities for reusing and recycling agricultural bi-products for a consumer packaged goods client. The solution ensured the bi-product would not go to waste and would be further used to support other farms to feed livestock. In addition, Source One’s cost reduction team also supported a leading manufacturing client in identifying and implementing cost-effective and environmentally friendly office equipment, while producing 12% cost savings.
In 2017, Source One Management Services celebrates its 25th Anniversary, another major milestone in its history. The procurement consultancy looks forward to a bright future continuing to support clients in their cost-reduction and supply management optimization goals. The firm also recently announced its return to the Institute for Supply Management’s Annual Conference (ISM2017) as event sponsors and featured speakers. Cost reduction consultants from Source One, in addition to hosting booth #225, will be presenting on a number of topics including millennial procurement talent management.
