Irvine, CA (May 16, 2018) – ADEC Innovations, a pioneer in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) solutions that create positive social and environmental impacts, announced today that its CleanChain software solution has been recognized with three prestigious awards: the ‘Top Environmental Product of the Year’ Award from the Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Today Product & Project Awards, the ‘Sustainability Product of the Year’ Award from Business Intelligence Group, and the ‘Green Supply Chain Award’ from Supply & Demand Chain Executive.

CleanChain is a data management and communication tool designed to support and manage environmental and sustainability challenges throughout global supply chains. Launched in September 2016, CleanChain provides brands and retailers with a system for consolidating chemical and other supply chain data across the entire supply base. By using CleanChain, companies have the ability to engage with each other and work towards improving environmental, health, and safety practices throughout their manufacturing processes, including eliminating the discharge of hazardous chemicals.

“CleanChain is a perfect example of ADEC Innovations’ commitment to developing solutions that accelerate positive, global impact,” said Robert A. Francisco, President, ADEC Innovations. “We are proud to have developed a tool that helps brands, retailers, and manufacturers simplify and streamline chemical management across their global supply chains, empowering them to make more informed and responsible sourcing decisions – resulting in a more sustainable future.”

The Business Intelligence Group Sustainability Awards honor those organizations which have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice.

“We are so proud to reward and recognize ADEC Innovations for their sustainability efforts and smart business strategy,” said Russ Fordyce, managing director, Business Intelligence Group. “Their innovation and leadership serve as a high benchmark for other organizations and leaders around the globe.”

The Supply & Demand Chain Executive Green Supply Chain Awards recognize companies making sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy, and working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and/or supply chains.

“Honorees for this year’s award demonstrate that corporate social responsibility is a business imperative that transcends the company and extends throughout the supply chain, involving suppliers and customers,” says John R. Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Our honorees serve as role models for supply chains globally to expand their CSR reach and impact.”

The Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Today Product & Project Awards recognize excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits, and in projects implemented by companies that result in improved environmental outcomes while positively impacting revenue.

According to Tim Hermes, publisher of Environmental Leader parent company, Business Sector Media, “With a highly respected (and critical) judging panel and a strict set of judging criteria, entrants faced an extremely high bar for the level of product or project to qualify for an award. Those who entered needed to bring their A-game to get even a sniff of award-nirvana. And they delivered.”

500 users in over 35 countries have joined CleanChain, helping companies reduce impacts in their supply chain and reach their corporate sustainability goals and milestones.
