DSC Logistics, a leading supply chain management company headquartered in Des Plaines, Illinois, was named to Food Logistics magazine’s 2012 list of Top Green Providers. DSC was also named in 2011, the year the award was established.
DSC introduced its formal sustainability program in 2009, and each year identifies and achieves specific sustainability initiatives throughout its network of over 40 Logistics Centers. As a result, DSC has won a sustainability award or been named a “green supply chain partner” six times. Food Logistics’ Top Green Providers list was created to recognize companies in the food and beverage sector that have embraced sustainability practices as central to their operations. In turn, they play a key role in their customers’ own sustainability efforts while simultaneously helping to advance awareness throughout the supply chain community.
“We are proud to receive this recognition from Food Logistics,” said David Kahlow, DSC’s director of sustainability. “DSC continues to improve and implement initiatives at all locations in our network, and to work with customers to understand and support their sustainability goals and efforts.”
Lara Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics, said, “Despite a difficult business climate, the companies on the Top Green Providers list have proven that making a commitment to sustainability in their operations not only delivers a measurable return on investment, but gives them a competitive advantage in the marketplace and in the eyes of their customers.”
