Arizona State University (ASU) was selected for its ambitious sustainability initiative.
Supply & Demand Chain Executive is the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation. The 2011 Green Supply Chain Awards recognizes companies that are making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and are working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations. Submissions were judged based on the clarity and content of the goals and strategy, the extent of the steps being taken, the impact of the results to date and projected results.
ASU’s goal is to become completely carbon-neutral and totally sustainable by 2035. To achieve these objectives, ASU is researching and investing in energy conservation and on-site renewable energy, educating staff and students and implementing a green purchasing policy and supply chain.
“We’re honored to be acknowledged for embracing more green and sustainable practices throughout our entire organization,” said John Riley, executive director, Purchasing & Business Services, ASU. “As part of our overall initiative, we have also implemented a green purchasing policy that is focused on selecting environmentally friendly goods and services. With SciQuest, staff and faculty are assured access to a variety of products that comply with our policy.”
“ASU’s sustainability initiative is truly groundbreaking and serves as a blueprint for schools and organizations looking to minimize their environmental impact,” said Max Leisten, market director for Higher Education, SciQuest. “The university’s green purchasing policy takes the guesswork out of making the right choices. Integrating eProcurement ensures organizations like ASU have access to the tools they need to be successful.”
The Green Supply Chain Award winners will be featured in the November/December issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
