LLamasoft is taking steps to reduce the carbon footprint of its annual
user conference and hosting a Sustainability Roundtable where customers
will share ideas about how they can positively impact the environment
and save capital by reducing delivery miles and waste. There will be no
plastic water bottles at LLamaCon, all utensils will be reusable and
printed agendas have been eliminated (all the event information is
available on the LLamaCon mobile app). The Marriott
Magnificent Mile
was selected because it has its own sustainability

LLamasoft’s Team is dedicated to improving under-served supply chains
and has partnered with the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD) to
offer a virtual
food drive
, at this year’s event. GCFD is Chicago’s food bank and
serves as a hub for a network of more than 700 food pantries, working to
expand access to nutritious food and address the root causes of hunger.
LLamasoft’s Global Impact Team designed a dynamic routing solution for
GCFD based on area codes, poundage and client areas. As a result, GCFD
was able to save significant costs in fuel and dispatching, purchase
more food, and deliver 72 million pounds of food. Looking ahead, GCFD
plans to use their supply chain expertise to create a program that
serves the older adult community of Cook County.
