The 2015 UFI Sustainable Development Award

Implementing sustainability usually involves taking into account the entire value chain. Innovative sustainable actions can lead to cost-savings. In order to promote both of these aspects, UFI has identified “Innovative cost-saving in the value chain” as the theme of the 2015 Sustainable Development Award.
