Company awarded by Food Logistics, Inbound Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive for green supply chain management andlogistics
OCONOMOWOC, Wis. — June 28, 2021— ORBIS® Corporation, an international leader in reusable packaging, has been recognized by three industry-leading publications for its commitments to supply chain sustainability and green logistics initiatives. ORBIS has been recognized with a Supply & Demand Chain Executive 2021 Top Supply Chain project award and named an Inbound Logistics 2021 G75 Green Supply Chain Partner and a Food Logistics 2021 Top Green Provider.
ORBIS has received these distinctions for its wide range of reusable packaging for use along the supply chain — such as pallets, totes, racks, containers, dunnage and bulk systems — and multiple service offerings that help customers measure and reduce their overall environmental impact. Specific to the Top Supply Chain project award, ORBIS was recognized for helping an American furniture manufacturer incorporate ocean-bound plastic waste into its reusable shipping bulk containers as part of its Ocean in Mind initiative.
Through the Ocean in Mind program, single-use plastic waste found near coastlines is recovered, recycled, and repurposed into reusable plastic packaging solutions for the supply chain. ORBIS is diverting roughly 1 million pounds of single-use plastic waste from the world’s oceans and preventing an additional 1 million pounds of single-use plastic from becoming environmental waste. Combined, this is the equivalent to keeping 50 million shampoo bottles out of our oceans annually. This new material stream enables ORBIS to contribute to natural resource conservation and community betterment. Additionally, ORBIS’ traditional comprehensive recycling program recovers and reprocesses customers’ obsolete and surplus plastic packaging into new products, further reducing waste.
Beyond the continued development and use of sustainable and recycled materials, another key differentiator is ORBIS’ Environmental Audit service to help leading companies analyze their supply chain, and measure and compare the environmental impact of their packaging in the areas of energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and solid waste. This capability compares reusable packaging with single-use or expendable packaging to drive supply chain sustainability, operational efficiency, and cost savings.
“We thank Supply & Demand Chain Executive, Food Logistics and Inbound Logistics for recognizing the sustainable and environmental impact our products, services, and materials have on the supply chain,” said Breanna Herbert, associate product manager and sustainability lead at ORBIS Corporation. “These distinctions affirm our position as a leader in sustainable packaging solutions as we continue to help our customers measure and reduce their environmental impact.”
