Winners of the Oracle Excellence Award—Eco-Enterprise Innovation

Did you get a chance to attend Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco? With 60,000 attendees and hundreds of sessions to choose from—there was a lot going on. One of my favorite sessions was the Eco-Enterprise Awards and Sustainability Executive Panel Discussion. During this session, Jeff Henley, Oracle Chairman of the Board, announced the winners of the 2013 Oracle Excellence Award—Eco-Enterprise Innovation. It was an enlightening session as we heard several of the winning customers discuss the importance of sustainability to their company and how they’re using various Oracle products to help with their sustainability initiatives. The winning customers include: Centennial Coal, Indaver nv, Korea Enterprise Data, National Guard Health Affairs, Schneider National, SThree, Telstra International Group, Trex Company, University of Salzburg, Walmart, and Yeoncheon County Office. Stay tuned for additional blogs where you’ll learn more about these winning companies’ environmental best practices and why they won this award.

Several partners were also recognized for helping these customers with their sustainability initiatives. Those partners include: CSS International, Daesang Information Technology, i4BI, Infosys, Knowledge Global, Solutions for Retails Brands Limited, and SysGen.

During this same session, Jeff Henley also awarded Robert Kaplan, Director of Sustainability at Walmart, with Oracle’s Chief Sustainability Officer of the Year award. Robert was honored for helping improve Walmart’s supply chain efficiency with their Sustainability Hub. The Sustainability Hub, powered by Oracle Service Cloud, is a central location for Walmart suppliers, associates and business partners to learn, connect, inspire and drive sustainability through collaboration. While at Oracle OpenWorld, I also got a chance to hear Robert Kaplan discuss their Sustainability Hub during an Oracle OpenWorld Live taping.

Korean Air, Winner of 2012 Oracle Excellence Award, Showcases Its Sustainability Success

Are you employing Oracle products for any of your sustainability initiatives? If you are an Oracle customer with a sustainability story to showcase – don’t miss the chance to nominate your company for the 2013 Oracle Excellence Award: Eco-Enterprise Innovation. Nominations are due June 21. 

One of our award winners last year was Korean Air. Korean Air is South Korea’s airline and its largest carrier. They used a combination of Oracle products to help them meet their environmental sustainability goals, such as reducing paper use, fuel consumption, aircraft noise, and carbon emissions from passenger and cargo transport. Korean Air was able to cut its catering costs by US$2.56 million per year and minimized food wastage, by creating route-specific menus based on accurate passenger numbers and regional demand. It also established an aircraft fuel management system that helped reduce its fuel consumption by 5%, based on revised laws and procedures about fuel allowances and ground-based auxiliary power units. In addition, Korean Air was able to save US$60,000 annually on paper costs and 165,000 sheets of paper per year by establishing a digital library and generating electronic airline tickets and other documents.
