enVista named to Food Logistics Magazine’s 2012 list of top green providers
enVista announced that it has been named to Food Logistics magazine’s 2012 Top Green Providers list for services that enable and promote sustainability. enVista consultants are LEAN distribution experts, helping food and beverage companies reduce waste from source to consumption. The firm will be profiled in the June issue of Food Logistics. The 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. According to Food Logistics Editor-in-Chief Lara L. Sowinski, “The response to our Top Green Providers list this year was overwhelming. Despite a difficult business climate, the companies on this year’s list have proven that making a commitment to sustainability in their operations
not only delivers a measurable return on investment, but also gives them a competitive advantage in the marketplace and in the eyes of their customers. Sustainability in the supply chain continues to evolve as more companies recognize the necessity for environmental conservation, while new technologies are making it easier to adopt and quantify sustainable practices.” enVista President and CEO Jim Barnes said, “It is immensely gratifying to help companies make a positive environmental impact by reducing waste throughout their supply chains. The results for our clients are often immediate and usually deliver not only desired sustainability, but also a significant impact to the bottom line. This is especially important to our food and beverage clients in an industry where profit margins are especially tight. We are honored to be named to Food Logistics’ list.” enVista enables companies to improve sustainability through supply chain strategy, operations, technology, transportation, ERP, and IT consulting services and solutions. These practices reduce inventory and transportation waste and optimize facilities, supply chain networks and labor productivity. enVista also promotes green practices and sustainability within its own organization through a variety of corporate practices and programs.
