OREM, Utah and HOUSTON — March 28, 2023 —Avetta®, the leading provider of contractor prequalification software, today announced that its Lead Sustainability & ESG Principal, Katie Martin, won a Supply & Demand Chain Executive 2023 Pros to Know Award. Martin is recognized for helping Avetta clients and suppliers assess supply chain ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) maturity, track progress, and grow their sustainability impact.

The annual Pros to Know award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage the supply chain for competitive advantage.

Martin was instrumental in Avetta expanding its Avetta One™ platform last year with an ESG and sustainability risk mitigation solution that allows companies to reach their ESG goals faster and with more confidence. The solution enables organizations to collect ESG and GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions details from their supply chain through an innovative and patent-pending SaaS ESG evaluation that provides a holistic view of ESG status across the entire supply chain.

Avetta is the only supply chain company to provide an ESG scoring system that considers individual company goals and global standards in more than 20 industry trades. The platform has proven to reduce environmental incidents and supply chain accidents by up to 70% compared to industry averages.

“Considering most companies do not have visibility into each supplier’s sustainability status, Katie’s achievements are that much more critical,” said Danny Shields, VP, Sustainability & Risk at Avetta. “Katie creates solutions to address ESG leaders’ goals across their supply chains, from initial program development to optimization and reporting, leveraging Avetta’s best-in-class technology platform to deliver transformative results for partners and prepare them for upcoming ESG & GHG regulations. We are proud of her work at Avetta and her SDCE Pros to Know win.”

For multinationals, up to 90% of their environmental footprint is in the supply chain. The lack of supply chain visibility increases the risks of unknowingly taking on unethical work practices, using protected resources and contributing to global climate change, leading to potential regulatory penalties, civil and criminal liability, and brand and reputation damage.    

“This year’s list is filled with supply chain professionals whose achievements and success stories have helped move the needle in the supply chain. They promote safety, sustainability and workforce development. They work toward helping heal the supply chain. They’re actually in the supply chain,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “We received close to 400 nominations this year, the highest number of nominations ever for this award. It’s proof that today’s supply chain professionals are doing great things for the supply chain. They embody what a true leader should be. And, without their initiatives, programs and collaborative efforts, today’s supply chains would be in worse shape.”

This is the 5th year in which an Avetta executive has been recognized as a Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
