The Procurement and Strategic Sourcing experts at Source One Management Services are honored to accept Supply and Demand Chain Executive's (SDCE) 2017 Green Supply Chain Award. This year marks the sixth-consecutive year that SDCE has recognized the Procurement leaders for their efforts to encourage responsible sourcing practices.
Over the last 25 years, Source One has provided forward-thinking companies with the sourcing expertise, procurement insights, and cross-industry market intelligence to achieve their sustainability goals. Their procurement consultants have continually succeeded in implementing eco-friendly, cost-saving procurement strategies for clients.
One of this year's most successful initiatives saw Source One's engineered products sourcing specialists assist a building products manufacturer. This client was interested in setting themselves apart from competitors with a new product design. Leveraging their years of experience sourcing direct materials, Source One's consultants located the ideal supplier. What made this vendor so appealing? Two words: Recycled plastics.
The combination of compression molding and repurposed resources presented a major cost reduction opportunity. They passed these savings onto their customers while differentiating themselves as a sustainability leader within their industry. With a new, uniquely-green manufacturing process, they're poised for years of sustainable practices.
With this honor, Source One ends its 25th year on a high note. Expect their sustainable purchasing specialists to produce even more responsible savings in 2018.
