NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Electric Utility Industry Sustainable Supply Chain Alliance (the Alliance) held its "Beyond Our Boundaries" Sustainable Sourcing Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Attendees had the unique opportunity to interact with supply chain and utility industry professionals, sustainability professionals, manufacturer representatives, and governmental and non-governmental entities from within and beyond the industry.
Multiple topics were covered including: perspectives from outside of the industry, core activities of the Alliance, new developments in the supplier survey, the release of the investment recovery voluntary standards, as well as insights from suppliers on their approach and perspective.
