Our approach to sustainability
We exist to keep the wheels of industry turning – right across Europe. That is our purpose. We are committed to delivering sustainable long-term value for our customers, employees, investors and other stakeholders.
As Europe’s leading distributor of industrial products and services, we have both the opportunity and the responsibility to reduce the environmental impact of European manufacturing.
As we strive to limit the impact we have on the environment, we have taken a number of steps to address our own carbon footprint, reducing energy consumption and waste:
Our automated packaging machines reduce unnecessary cardboard consumption while increasing the capacity of the vehicles carrying the goods.
We have also optimised our transport routes and consolidated orders, cutting kilometres travelled by more than 20 per cent.
To further reduce our environmental impact, we have implemented video conferencing across to all major sites, reducing flights by more than 30 per cent.
