Our environmental principles
Our industry can have a significant impact on the environment, and we do all we can to minimise it. In addition to promoting sustainable logistics, we’ve also developed a rigorous environmental policy. This is supported by an environmental management system and is cascaded throughout Wincanton, ensuring that all employees are fully aware of their roles and responsibilities.
A well-managed supply chain can play a key role in mitigating the impact of our customers’ activities as well as our own. So we share our knowledge and experience along the supply chain, for example, by identifying efficiencies, promoting collaborative working and by offering significant expertise and experience in managing environmentally sustainable logistics.
Through new technologies we are identifying opportunities to drive fewer miles, consume less fuel while maintaining performance. For example, applying data from our telematics technology to promote improved driver behaviour, shows how a smoother driver uses less fuel and generates fewer emissions; a comprehensive Transport Management System helps us better plan routes to reduce miles; and a rolling programme of fleet modernisation means we are driving the most efficient and highest performing fleet.
