Controlant Receives 2019 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Green Supply Chain Award


Real-time supply chain visibility provider recognized for global waste reduction and sustainability efforts

Reykjavik and San Francisco—December 11, 2019—Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, has selected Controlant as a recipient of an SDCE Green Supply Chain Award for 2019.  

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 10th-annual awards recognize small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.

“Every year our Green Supply Chain Award recipients demonstrate what is achievable in supply chain sustainability,” says John R. Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “It is clear that while sustainability is not a new concept, there is always more we can accomplish.”

“We extend our congratulations to this year’s award recipients and their commitment to green initiatives,” adds Yuva. “The entries serve as best-in-class examples for other companies to model and create value for their supply chains.”

“We are honored to be recognized for our environmental and sustainability efforts,” said Gisli Herjolfsson, Controlant’s CEO. “The temperature-controlled supply chain is complex and siloed, and waste is widespread. Our company’s mission is to ensure consumer safety and reduce global cold chain waste by 70 percent. Through our real-time monitoring technology and proactive services, we are enabling businesses to make decisions that measurably improve the efficiency of their supply chains, reduce product and environmental waste, and empower companies to meet their corporate sustainability objectives.”
