Sarasota County earns Green Supply Chain Award

Post Date:01/04/2019 12:54 PM
Sarasota County Government Materials Management team has earned the Supply and Demand Chain Executive Award for the second consecutive year. 
The award recognizes companies and organizations that are making sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and supply chains. The integration of sustainability into the operations of the county's materials management division has resulted in cost savings and waste reduction benefits.

According to Sarasota County General Services Director Jeff Lowdermilk, the county's material's management division has fully embraced environmental stewardship, which is one of general services' organizational goals.
"I'm very proud of their efforts, and their continued dedication to saving money and providing the highest level of service," Lowdermilk added.  
As part of the division's efforts to promote and practice sustainability, they have made strides in eliminating waste, through recycling and joint collaboration with key suppliers and vendors.

"Sustainability isn't just a lofty goal we are trying to achieve as a community," said UF/IFAS Extension Services Director Lee Hayes Byron. "It's something we put into practice every day throughout our organization, and this latest award reflects how Sarasota County is leading by example."
