Norcross, GA, Dec. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Supply Demand Chain Executive awarded Atlantix Global Systems a 2016 Green Supply Chain Award, as revealed in the December issue of the publication. Atlantix Global, a leading independent VAR (value-added reseller), was recognized for its Asset Recovery Service Program, which Atlantix Global’s asset recovery services program maximizes the return on investment of a company’s end-of-life or surplus IT equipment, while also mitigating compliance risks when the equipment is refurbished, remarketed or recycled.
The company believes that the most important aspect of asset recovery is the recycling process of end-of-life equipment. Its R2 standard certification—which focuses on the performance of electronics recyclers in environmental and public health, employee health and safety, security (data and facility), and the whole of the recycling process through final equipment disposition—confirms the company’s commitment to responsible recycling. Alantix customers see the results of green IT by reducing their footprint of electronic waste (e-waste), which is produced when electronic equipment is not properly disposed.maximizes the return on investment of a company’s end-of-life or surplus IT equipment, while also mitigating compliance risks when the equipment is refurbished, remarketed or recycled.

The Green Supply Chain Award recognizes companies making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy, and are working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and supply chains. The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.
This year’s ninth-annual awards recognize small, mid-size and large enterprises that leveraged green practices and solutions to further drive sustainable improvements in their supply chain.
“Our honorees are showing that the bottom line and corporate responsibility are not mutually exclusive,” says Ronnie Garrett, editor of Supply Demand Chain Executive. “This has been increasingly evident over the past few years and is relatively clear with the large number of entries we received this year—almost 200—for our annual green awards. Sustainability has, for these companies, become a key part of their supply chain strategies.”
“Our goal is to honor those companies in our annual awards and credit them with the recognition they deserve,” Garrett adds. “They have recognized the need for supply chain sustainability, something that’s not always easy to do.”
Supply Demand Chain Executive is the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, utilizing hard-hitting analysis, viewpoints, and unbiased case studies to steer executives and supply management professionals through the complicated, yet critical, world of supply and demand chain enablement to gain competitive advantage.
