Patagonia receives GTNexus supply chain award

Ventura, Calif. – Outdoor apparel retailer Patagonia has been awarded the Supply Chain Innovation Award from supply chain management technology provider GT Nexus for continued efforts in creating a responsible supply chain. The Supply Chain Innovation Award recognizes Patagonia's commitment to partnering with its suppliers as it improves supply chain processes.

Patagonia uses the GT Nexus AppXpress platform for document management, social and environmental compliance, and quality control audit. Patagonia's program is built around a four-fold supplier certification process to ensure quality and responsibility. The program focuses on production capabilities, quality processes, social responsibility, and environmental responsibility.

"Every business decision we make hinges on our drive to become more socially and environmentally responsible," said Doug Freeman, COO of Patagonia. "'Walking the talk' means building deep, collaborative partnerships with our suppliers to continually seek improvement in working conditions and reducing environmental impact."
