Winston-Salem, N.C. (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
Inmar today announced that it has been recognized by Supply Chain and Demand Executive for the “Green Supply Chain Award.” The award was for Inmar’s work to promote sustainability initiatives with all trading partners in the supply chain.
Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s “Green Supply Chain Awards” spotlight the different sustainable approaches that global businesses take to cut costs, save time, drive revenue and improve their carbon footprint in the areas of product lifecycle management (PLM), order demand capture, sourcing, technology and integration infrastructure, procurement and other areas of the supply chain.
"Leading companies recognize that initiating sustainable practices in their supply chain processes is key towards driving their competitive edge in today’s recovering economy,” said Barry Hochfelder, Editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “This has been increasingly evident over the past few years and is relatively clear with the increased number of entries we received this year for our annual green awards. The increased adoption of green best practices and strategies will only continue to grow.”
Working with Inmar’s technology and nationwide returns facilities, remarketing solutions help extend the life cycle of products and keep them viable for consumer purchase. Carbon footprint is also reduced by managing transportation and using facilities closer to retailer distribution centers.
“Being recognized for initiatives such as this is particularly gratifying,” says David Mounts, CEO and President of Inmar. ”Working for sustainable solutions for all trading partners is the power of the Inmar Networks,” adds Mounts.
