The prestigious Oracle Sustainable Innovation Award 2015 is being awarded to USAID’s Southern Africa Trade Hub as a result of the Warehouse Receipts System IT programs in Zambia and Mozambique. The Trade Hub is one of five awardees this year (including CISCO) as selected by a voting board at Oracle in San Francisco.
The award consists of a trophy and the opportunity to meet with the Vice Chairman and the Chief Sustainability Officer of Oracle, as well as the other recipients of the award to share experiences and best practices. The Oracle Excellence Awards program recognizes customers and partners that have excelled in driving business value. The Sustainable Innovation Award concentrates on the use of technology to support sustainability and efforts that improve conditions for others.
Past award winners have included Safe Water Kenya, Recycling and Development Initiative of South Africa (REDISA), and many American companies who have used Oracle products to promote environmentally friendly practices and conservation techniques. The award will be presented during Oracle OpenWorld 2015 (October 25-29) in San Francisco.
