MINNEAPOLIS, MN (December 19, 2016) — HighJump, a global provider of supply chain network solutions, announced today that they have been selected as a recipient of a Supply & Demand Chain Executive (SDCE) Green Supply Chain Award for 2016. SDCE is the executive's user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation. This marks the 5th year in a row that HighJump has received this award.
The Green Supply Chain Award recognizes companies making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy, and are working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and supply chains. The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.
This year's ninth-annual awards recognize small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.
As a supply chain solutions provider, HighJump creates numerous efficiencies throughout the supply chain process, from implementing methods of data tracking and storage that rely less on paper needs, to workflows that optimize product movement not only in the warehouse but also for delivery. These efficiencies result in lower material use and energy consumption, leading in reductions in our customers’ carbon footprint.
“HighJump is proud to once again receive this award, as it shows our continued commitment to help customers reach their own sustainability goals,” said Michael Cornell, CEO, HighJump. “With new technologies and innovations, opportunities for companies to cut back on their environmental impact are constantly emerging, and we want to keep supporting our customers in such efforts.”
“Our honorees are showing that the bottom line and corporate responsibility are not mutually exclusive,” says Ronnie Garrett, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “This has been increasingly evident over the past few years and is relatively clear with the large number of entries we received this year—almost 200—for our annual green awards. Sustainability has, for these companies, become a key part of their supply chain strategies.”
“Our goal is to honor those companies in our annual awards and credit them with the recognition they deserve,” Garrett adds. “They have recognized the need for supply chain sustainability, something that’s not always easy to do.”
