GEP’s sustainability solution is customizable for clients across all industries, and was selected for this award out of 120 total entries. Winners of the 2010 Green Supply Chain Awards are 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, and the form and presentation of the information submitted. GEP’s sustainability strategies include simple initiatives to reduce energy consumption, encourage recycling, and more complex plans involving procurement and strategic sourcing of more environmentally-friendly components and products.
