The Environment

We never overlook the fact that the world of retail is only a part of the world around us. Here’s how we’re helping to reduce our impact on the environment.

  • We closely follow legislation and regulations, working to respected codes of practice, and regularly reviewing and improving how we work
  • We champion carbon management and reduce energy consumption and emissions of greenhouse gases from our warehouses
  • We’re exploring alternative fuels, investing in route planning and green vehicles, and auditing our business travel to minimise emissions
  • We use raw materials and recycled / recyclable products wherever possible
  • We assess and reduce water usage through efficient technology and internal awareness
  • We minimise waste by compacting, reusing and recycling
  • We promote environmental awareness at every level of the business and encourage staff to take personal responsibility
  • We liaise with suppliers, customers and contractors to improve Environmental Management across the supply chain
