Houston, TX. December 8, 2017 – Spinnaker, the international provider of supply chain consulting and returns management solutions, is a 2017 recipient of the 10th Annual Green Supply Chain Award for the seventh consecutive year. This year's awards recognize small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.

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.

Spinnaker designs and operates sustainable supply chains for Fortune 500 companies with a strategic focus within Remanufacturing and Reuse of a wide variety of products. We have successfully designed and implemented programs that divert in excess of 1.5MM pounds of material from landfills through remanufacturing, reuse and recycling. “We are proud to have established proven solutions that improve the percentage of goods that are re-used; that increase utilization of ‘eco-friendly’ materials and packaging; and that cut energy consumption as well as greenhouse gas emissions,” says Jeff Jorgensen, SVP of Supply Chain for Spinnaker’s Returns Management division.

“Spinnaker has exceeded our sustainability goals for each of the past 3 years, across all client facilities and introduced incremental services into non-manufacturing facilities that help support our focus to Reduce, Reuse, Reman and Recycle,” remarks Jorgensen.

“Honorees for this year’s award demonstrate that corporate social responsibility is a business imperative that transcends the company and extends throughout the supply chain, involving suppliers and customers,” says John R. Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The number of entries only increase year over year, demonstrating how critical sustainability initiatives are within companies.”

“We congratulate this year’s honorees for their commitment to sustainability and recognize their tremendous achievements,” Yuva adds. “Our honorees serve as role models for supply chains globally to expand their CSR reach and impact.”
