The logistics and supply chain industry has been inherently heavy on carbon emissions; historically, driving a carbon-neutral performance has been a challenge. With thousands of trucks on the road and tonnes of packaging, it has not been easy to find environmentally friendly solutions that are sustainable in the long term and support business growth.
In December 2020 the UK Prime Minister announced the ambitious new emissions target, setting the UK on the path to net zero by 2050 and leading the way in tackling climate change globally. This means that, at Wincanton, we have an imperative to focus on sustainability as an integral part of business strategy, to meet these 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 friendly, 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.
