On Thursday, May 6, 2010 in Menlo Park at Orrick, SDForum presented its Green and Clean Evening Series: â€œThe Modern Green Supply Chain ? Marrying Profitability & Sustainability?â€ Mitch Zuklie of Orrick moderated panelists Judy Glazer of Hewlett-Packard, Stephen Meller of Procter and Gamble, Jamie O’Halloran of GXS, Alex Salkever of Picarro, and Andrew Williamson of Physic Ventures.
They discussed the information and communications technology (ICT) industry efforts to create sustainable supply chains using the Electronic Industry Code of Conduct (EICC) and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) guidelines. Opportunities exist for companies like Picarro, which can take a sample of a product and determine if it is a green product or not. HP has been examining its supply chain and improving efficiencies for over twenty years. P&G developed coldwater detergents that eliminate the need for heating water and save energy. GXC and Physic Ventures constantly look at the logistics from a green perspective knowing in the long run it may not only save money, but make it.
