January 8, 2019

Green Supply Chains Award 2007 – and the winner is …. Eastman Kodak!

Mainstream corporations are really “Going Green”. And if you need more proof, it has just been announced that Kodak Eastman has won the highly coveted Green Supply Chains award 2007. There were 5 finalists in the newest and most interesting category – The Green Supply Chain Awards this year: BAYER, CIBA, Eastman Chemicals, Pfizer & Shell. The nominations and judging process was rigorous and lengthy.

The awards ceremony was a glittering dinner of the industry’s who’s who at the Hong Kong Convention Centre. On the night of November 22nd in Hong Kong at the gala dinner Dr. Wolfgang Partsch of Global Supply Chain Group announced the winner with his customary flourish – Eastman Kodak.

Eastman spokesperson submitted “We have been experiencing a changing competitive landscape with globalization and the advancing technologies. These have created a more demanding set of market requirements such as a more reliable supply management and “customized” product. We envisage the growth of Eastman will lead to a broader and more complex supply chain and this increase in complexity, combined with higher customer expectations, will put a lot of pressure on the supply chain. We continually promote the principles and practices of Responsible Care by sharing experiences and offering assistance to others who produce, handle, use, transport or dispose of our chemicals.”

The judges certainly agreed – they awarded the coveted prize to the company. While presenting the award on behalf of the sponsors, Global Supply Chain Group, Dr. Wolfgang Partsch the senior partner from Munich and the man widely credited with co-creating the terminology and methodology of Supply Chain Management over 25 years ago said “Going Green is about more than just reducing packaging or your carbon footprint. It involves making environmentally-wise choices in supply chain design and execution, including managing the reverse supply chain to efficiently manage and remove waste. This can be accomplished by a few key initiatives within extended supply chains including: [list icon=”icon: chevron-right” icon_color=”#37c6f5″]

    GSCM has been identified as an approach for improving the performance of the processes and products according to the requirements of environmental regulations.

    GSCM and Conventional SCM differ in various ways. GSCM takes considerations to ecology as well as the economy as an objective, while Conventional SCM is usually concentrated on an economy as a single objective. GSCM is green, integrated and ecologically optimized, while Conventional SCM does not take into consideration human toxicological effects.
    Ecological requirements are key criteria for products and productions and at the same time, the company must assure its economic sustainability by staying competitive and profitable.
