ANN ARBOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LLamasoft, a global leader in supply chain optimization software and solutions, today announced that it has been recognized by one of the supply chain industry’s leading publications, Supply & Demand Chain Executive, for its commitment to incorporating sustainability into its operations and for assisting its customers in achieving their sustainability goals. LLamasoft is honored to have been named a recipient of a 2017 Green Supply Chain Award for these accomplishments.
The Green Supply Chain Award recognizes both companies making sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy, and those working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations. The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services who assist customers in achieving their measurable sustainability goals.
“Supply chain design is a delicate balancing act. Our clients have to trade-off financial considerations with the impact on service and risk, all while paying attention to the long-term impact on sustainable supply chains,” said Don Hicks, President and CEO of LLamasoft. “Not only is our technology enabling our customers to operate more sustainably, but our LLamasoft team nurtures a culture that focuses on sustainability within our own organization as well.”
LLamasoft’s workplace sustainability initiatives are led by the LLama Green Team. Over the past year they have expanded and improved company-wide recycling practices and established alternative commuting options for employees. These options offer employees locked and enclosed bike parking, and a “Pass on the Parking Pass” system that rewards people with cash for choosing to get to LLamasoft’s headquarters without parking. Additionally, LLamasoft provides access to two bikes to be used exclusively for team members who need to run errands. LLamasoft’s commitment to sustainability doesn’t stop there, as annual education surrounding Earth Week provides related events for employees to attend which promote excitement around living environmentally friendly.
