)-- The spend management
team at Source One, a Corcentric company, proudly accepts Supply and Demand Chain Executive (SDCE)’s Green Supply Chain Award for 2018.
Each year, SDCE recognizes the forward-thinking companies who are working to champion sustainable Supply Management practices. This marks the seventh consecutive year that Source One’s green Procurement has earned this prestigious distinction.
Empowering clients with their unique mix of market intelligence and category expertise, Source One’s team has helped countless organizations realize the value of sustainable supply chain practices. Over more than two and a half decades, they have both driven the Procurement function forward and steered the conversation around responsible sourcing. Their ambitious team has supported sustainability initiatives a range of industries including construction, agriculture, and consumer packaged goods.
This year, the experts in green Procurement are recognized for assisting a financial institution in reducing its carbon footprint. While the engagement began with supplier consolidation in mind, it soon offered up a valuable opportunity to cut down on the client’s contribution to climate change. Source One’s team released an RFP with the goal of identifying a single armored services provider capable of serving both ATMs and branch locations. In addition to the considerable environmental benefit, reducing the supply base to a single provider decreased driving hours and produced 10% savings in the category.
“At Source One,” says VP of Operations, William Dorn, “we’ve long considered it our responsibility to emphasize the importance of sustainable Procurement practices.” He continues, “This often means working against the misconception that more responsible practices are inherently more costly. By identifying solutions that are both green and cost-effective, we help our clients think differently while simultaneously delivering on their cost reduction and sustainability objectives
Interest in sustainable Supply Chain Management is by no means a new development. It is, however, increasingly crucial for businesses to make environmental responsibility a piece of their mission. Source One makes it possible for future-conscious clients to optimize their approach to sustainability without sacrificing savings.
