Sponsor The Inaugural “Green Supply Chain Award”

Global Green Supply Chain Group To Sponsor The Inaugural ‘Green Supply Chain Award’ At The Upcoming Supply Chain Asia Logistics Awards 2007.

Global Supply Chain Group, a supply chain strategy consulting organization headquartered in Sydney is sponsoring the coveted ‘Green Supply Chain Award’ at the upcoming Supply Chain Asia Logistics Awards 2007.

On behalf of the Global Supply Chain Group, the award will be presented by Dr. Wolfgang Partsch, the man credited with co-creating the terminology and methodology of Supply Chain Management over 25 years ago, and a senior partner with Global Supply Chain Group.

“Supply Chains have come a long way in the last 25 years when we did our first projects in Supply Chain Management, and now occupy centre-stage of business life. It is time Supply Chain disciplines were combined with green principles to create and extend Green Supply Chains that benefit the society around the world” – Dr. Parstch said.

The Green Supply Chain Award is based on the following principles:

Governments and industry organizations around the globe have started to issue directives on how to minimize the environmental impact of supply chain and logistics processes; and consumers in many countries are becoming more conscious of purchasing products that have been produced and delivered under certain environmental standards.

The Green Supply Chain Award is aimed at rewarding organisations that have foreseen this trend and are making genuine efforts to minimize the environmental impact of their supply chain processes.

The criteria for the award are as follows:

  • Nominated companies should be recognized as leaders in the field of building environmental sustainability into industry and should have a track record of excellence in environmental standards in creation and deliverance of products and services.
  • Companies should be proven to regularly take measures to improve their environmental performance, such as through application of environmental criteria to assess and choose suppliers, and study and action to control emissions from transportation requirements.
  • Companies should adhere to and/or outperform all official national, regional and global environmental guidelines set for their industry.
  • Companies should be profitable in the past year and show a strong recent track record of profitability.

Aside from the sponsors such as Global Supply Chain Group, Agility, Emirates Shipping Line, LRQA, TT Club and Virgin Atlantic, other attendees at the event will include:

DP World, Dubai Logistics City , Emirates Sky Cargo, DHL, UPS, Fedex, Schenker, KN, Li & Fung, Cargolux, Cathay Pacific, Maersk, Evergreen.

Mr. Vivek Sood, the Managing Director of Global Supply Chain Group has stated “We are excited to sponsor the inaugural Green Supply Chain Award.

Our current research delves deeply into extending the supply chain disciplines into Green Supply Chain arena.

We are looking forward to sponsoring this award for many years to come, and work with corporations to make their Supply Chains more green.”

There are 5 finalists in the category: BAYER, CIBA, Eastman Chemicals, Pfizer & Shell.

The judges are deciding the winner soon, and the winner will be revealed on the night of the awards on November 22 nd in Hong Kong at a gala industry dinner at Hong Kong Convention Centre.

OUTPERFORM OUTSOURCE OUTPROFIT

The trend of outsourcing continues to grow unabated with the whole gamut of services, from simple to mission-critical tasks. There is not a single company on earth that does not outsource anything. It is not just about cost arbitrage, it is also a finer expression of division of labour at the organisational level. Like all leverage, outsourcing is a double-edged sword too. On one hand, it allows you to do more, faster. On the other hand, if it goes bad, it can easily kill your business. If you do not believe that is possible – you can google the Fox Meyer saga from the 90s and see for yourself.

GREEN SUPPLY CHAIN – AN ACTION MANIFESTO

It is generally accepted that environmental consciousness is now changing to environmental proactiveness as organizations are discovering that it makes good commercial sense.

Boards are asking the management to review their policies related to environmental norms, not only to bolster their corporate social responsibility aims, but also because consumers are asking for greener supply chains

It is also widely agreed that consumers will increasingly prefer to buy more and even pay more for products or services provided in an environmentally sound manner.
