Unilever honored with Salzberg Medallion

British-Dutch corporation earns award for its supply chain sustainability practices.

The British-Dutch consumer-goods company Unilever is this year's recipient of the prestigious Salzberg Medallion, awarded annually by The Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University to individuals and organizations for their contributions in transportation, logistics, and supply chain management.

Unilever earned the award for its performance in supply chain sustainability, according to a statement from the Whitman School and the H.H. Franklin Center for Supply Chain Management.

As a global corporation that distributes food, beverages, cleaning agents, and personal care products around the world, Unilever has become a leader in supply chain sustainability thanks to its philosophy that a healthy environment leads to a healthy business. Unilever has applied these values to its operations in 190 countries, setting a supply chain industry benchmark for initiatives such as zero-waste programs and sustainable sourcing, officials said.

Salzberg Medallion candidates are nominated each year by former recipients and other distinguished practitioners in the transportation and supply chain management professions.
