Wolseley gain ‘green’ accreditation

Wolseley are celebrating after achieving a milestone in environmental management.

Wolseley gain 'green' accreditation

The group have gained ISO 14001 accreditation for environmental management at their four main distribution centres, at Leamington Spa, Worcester, Marston Gate near Milton Keynes and Melmerby near Ripon.

Wolseley’s UK headquarters at Leamington Spa has also achieved ISO 14001 accreditation.

Wolseley’s environmental co-ordinator Connor Dalton said: “Implementing the ISO 14001 programme has led to a greater awareness among staff, increased levels of recycling, less waste going to landfill and a reduction in the environmental impact of the company’s operations.

“Achieving this International Standard is a fantastic achievement and is the result of many months of hard work by all staff. However, gaining this accreditation is only the beginning – maintaining and improving the system will require continual improvement from all staff at these locations.”
