The Alliance for Innovation & Operational Excellence (AIOE) is pleased to announce a partnership with Ecodesk, a cloud based platform for enhancing global supply chain sustainability. According to AIOE Managing Director Stephen C. Schlegel, the partnership agreement will give AIOE members a better way to communicate their sustainability efforts to customers and will give customers enhanced oversight over their supply chains.
“The partnership will promote supply chain sustainability and operational best practice to some of the world’s leading manufacturing brands and businesses,” said Schlegel. “With this partnership, we will see some of the leading manufacturing brands in the US following in the footsteps of existing Ecodesk users GSK, MGM Resorts and CA Technologies and embracing open data sustainability reporting.”
“We are looking forward to working with AIOE to help develop best practice in the area of sustainable supply, whilst at the same time offering AIOE members the means to measure and manage their own supply chains,” said Dr. Nick Murry, Ecodesk’s chief sustainability officer and AIOE partnership manager. “With Ecodesk’s support, many organizations are already deriving real value from an improved understanding of their supplier base using a single, effective, affordable platform.”
PMMI founded AIOE in 2011 to create a forum where original equipment manufacturers and other suppliers and CPGs could collaborate to develop supply chain best practices. AIOE’s more than 100 members include ConAgra, Del Monte, PepsiCo, Smithfield Foods, Sunny Delight, Snyder’s Lance and Land O’Lakes. Its mission is to improve the performance of CPG manufacturers and their suppliers by developing non-proprietary solutions to common production operations challenges.
