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.
