“The world’s leading organizations are embracing environmental initiatives as a central part of their business strategy,” said Oracle Chairman, Jeff Henley. “While these initiatives are driven by a diverse range of business objectives, including the desire to protect the environment, reduce costs or produce eco-friendly goods to meet growing consumer demand, the one constant is the central role for Information Technology. This is why Oracle is acknowledging its customers’ environmental leadership with the “Enable the Eco-Enterprise” awards as environmental initiatives are not only good for the environment, but ultimately good for business overall.”
"Technology vendors have a critical role to play to enable more sustainable business practices," said Cody Sisco, Manager of Advisory Services at BSR (Business for Social Responsibility). "The emphasis on sustainability at Oracle's global customer and partner event demonstrates how important it considers these opportunities. Through Oracle's "Enable the Eco-Enterprise" awards, Oracle is rewarding more sustainable business practices, and demonstrating how other organizations can use technology to cut costs, improve business efficiencies, and minimize their environmental impacts. We encourage Oracle and the software industry to continue to accelerate their customers' progress in addressing sustainability challenges."
