The Port of Charleston's environmental efforts have been recognized in Inbound Logistics annual 50 Green Supply Chain Partners list.

According to the Charleston Regional Business Journal's article, "Criteria for selection included public-private partnerships, corporate sustainability initiatives and collaborative, customer-driven projects. From that base, Inbound Logistics also considered measurable green results and sustainability innovation."

The major contributing factor to the port's inclusion on this year's list was their recent environmental stewardship policy, Pledge for Growth. The State Ports Authority put a cool $12 million toward across the board equipment overhauls as well as land, water and community projects.

Hop on over to theĀ Charleston Regional Business Journal's post to read more on the honor.
