Prof LJ Grobler, founding member of the Southern African Association of Energy Efficiency (SAEE) which was launched 10 years ago before ‘greening’ was a hot topic, was announced as the winner in the Green Industry Leader category of the Green Supply Chain Awards 2012. He is the first non-American to be elected president of the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) in the US and was instrumental in the development of protocols and guidelines for the measurement and verification of demand-side management initiatives.

The country’s top green organizations and individuals were honored for their committed efforts at the 4th annual Green Supply Chain Awards – the only awards in South Africa dedicated to greening the supply chain. The awards were presented during a function at the Sandton Sun Hotel on 21 August 2012. A joint initiative of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport: South Africa (CILTSA), the Consumer Goods Council of South Africa (CGCSA) and Supply Chain Today magazine, the awards cover three categories: Industry Leader, Best Project and Best Product.

 Also category winners:

•           Best Project under R1-million – e-Waste Association of SA

•           Best Project between R1-million and R10-million – Rainbow Farms

•           Best Project over R10-million  – TFD Network Africa

•           Best Product under R1-million –  ECO₂Fleet

•           Best Product over R1-million – DHL

The aim of the Green Supply Chain Awards is to recognize and reward companies that are making genuine efforts to minimize the environmental impact of their supply chain processes and actively seek ways to improve environmental performance through:

•           Identifying goals to reduce their company’s impact on the environment;

•           Developing a detailed action plan for achieving each goal;

•           Reporting progress towards achieving these goals.
