Converge, a global supply chain partner for technology companies, has been named a 2010 Green Supply Chain Award winner by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. Converge was recognized for its ability to help global enterprise organizations identify the best strategy for retiring IT assets and meet their sustainability goals.

Converge understands the complexities of IT asset disposal strategies and offers services that allow enterprise organizations to meet the increasing obligations of protecting the environment. Its services offer customers a strong lineup of environmentally driven product lifecycle management services founded on the fundamentals of sustainable waste reduction, including IT asset remarketing, redeployment, donations and environmental recycling.

“As more enterprises realize the environmental impact of e-waste, there has been an increase in the adoption of formalized IT asset disposition strategies, and global companies like Converge are offering the services that allow businesses to commit to green practices,” said Chris Adam, VP of IT asset disposition services, Converge. “We take pride in offering our partners the most efficient and sustainable solutions and are honored to receive Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s acknowledgement of our achievements.”

The 2010 Green Supply Chain Awards recognize companies that are making green initiatives a core part of their supply chain strategy and working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and/or supply chains in sourcing/procurement, fulfillment/logistics, operations, product lifecycle management and other areas of the supply chain. The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services that are helping their customers achieve measurable sustainability goals.

"The participants in this year’s Green Supply Chain Awards showed an unwavering commitment to providing and implementing the technologies that make sustainability a realizable goal for companies of all sizes,” said Andrew K. Reese, editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Improper IT equipment retirement is a major contributor to the growing problem of e-waste worldwide, and Converge was recognized for the environmentally responsible services it offers that allow enterprises to easily manage their IT asset disposition needs.”

The awards will be featured in the November/December issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
