Date:2/17/2010

Major corporations to become inaugural members.

(PRWEB) February 17, 2010 -- The MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics (MIT CTL) will launch the Global LEAP—Leaders in Environmental Assessment and Performance— research consortium at its annual Crossroads Conference on March 25, 2010, in Cambridge, MA. Chiquita Brands and Lockheed Martin are the first commercial organizations to sign up for this ground-breaking project to design supply chains that meet the sustainability goals that are redefining the way companies operate. Inaugural members have pledged comprehensive support for the new consortium including a financial commitment, in-kind resources, thought leadership, and active participation. MIT CTL is seeking more members.

MIT CTL teamed up with MIT’s Material Systems Lab (MSL) and Chiquita to create the LEAP concept. The consortium of top companies and experts in supply chain and the environment will address sustainability issues in relation to the key areas of energy, transportation, packaging/waste materials, natural resources, greenhouse gases, and water.

“We aim to understand how supply chains are going to change as they incorporate new perspectives on design and performance, specifically moving from traditional metrics of cost and service, into impact on the environment,” said Edgar Blanco, Research Director MIT CTL and Executive Director, MIT SCALE Latin America. "Those measures are not usually included in supply chain analysis but in the future we see a need for their inclusion, and the Global LEAP initiative is trying to give companies the right tools to do so successfully."

MIT CTL’s annual Crossroads conference is the ideal launching pad for the initiative becaus
