Food Logistics’ annual Top Green Providers Award recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. Each year, the criteria for earning a spot on the list become more stringent for applicants. For example, the editorial staff evaluates a company’s participation in such programs as the EPA’s SmartWay and other recognized sustainability programs. Other criteria include facilities that are LEED-certified, solar power, LED lighting, and other energy-saving installations and retrofits that produce measurable reductions in GHG emissions.
