The logistics and supply chain industry is associated with significant carbon emissions through its use of diesel fuel. Historically, driving emissions reduction has been a challenge because of the maturity and commercial attractiveness of diesel and the associated refuelling infrastructure.
In June 2019 the UK Prime Minister announced an ambitious new emissions target, setting the UK on the path to net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and leading the way in tackling climate change globally. At Wincanton, being at the heart of British business, we have an imperative to focus on sustainability as an integral part of our business strategy, helping our customers to meet their own ambitious targets and prosper, delivering positive outcomes to a complex set of stakeholders.
With our purpose being ‘great people delivering sustainable supply chain value’, Wincanton defines ‘sustainable’ as delivering ethically, environmentally, socially and financially for the long term. Our ESG policy is part of The Wincanton Way, our code of conduct. We have made tangible and real commitments as part of our ESG approach.
Net-zero carbon emissions by 2040
We are committed to our part in the supply chain industry’s role in protecting the future of our planet and will achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2040.
At Wincanton we want to be the leading provider of net-zero solutions for fleet, property and waste to support current and future customer engagement, and to be the best performing and most trusted supply chain solutions company.
Importantly, we are committed to making Wincanton a great place to work.
