Bellwether Services Designs Green Supply Chain Pilot Program 4 Global Sourcing, Procurement, Purchasing Leaders- American Clean Energy & Security Act
John Wilkerson, Executive Director for Bellwether Services authors an innovative Green Supply Chain Pilot Program for the Global Purchasing, Supply Chain, Procurement, Buying, and Strategic Sourcing Community. This low cost / high impact pilot program was developed in response to the U.S. H.R.2454 - American Clean Energy & Security Act of 2009 (ACES). ACES require U.S. firms to reduce their Carbon Footprint by 17% in 2020.
If implemented as prescribed, this 4 step Green Supply Chain Pilot Program could reduce the Corporate Supply Chain carbon footprint in less than 12 weeks. Most forward thinking Procurement organizations can easily integrate this short term pilot into existing Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) and continuous improvement (CI) initiatives.
