We aspire to be a truly sustainable company and recognise the need to meet the Environmental, Social and Governance expectations of our stakeholders, including transparent reporting of our progress towards our commitments, goals and targets.

To achieve this, we have chosen to use the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) measures that relate to our areas of impact and influence. These show our progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals that we have selected as the ones where, as a predominantly UK supply chain provider, we can make the best contribution.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

Wincanton supports the achievement of all the United Nations sustainable development goals (SDGs) and their associated targets. In our business sectors, we will strive to make progress against those SDGs where we can have a direct, positive material impact in the regions in which we operate.

We are specifically committed to making progress against the following UN sustainable development goals:




ESG policy


Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) measures

We have chosen to present the ESG information in tabular form so that information is consistently presented across E, S and G where possible.

GRI references are provided for clarity and we have provided the specific definition of each measure so that users are able to make comparisons with confidence.

Further explanatory references and narrative are provided where required.
