Wiles Greenworld specialise in office supplies, design supplies, printing, IT systems, consumables and accessories, catering and cleaning products and furniture, but what makes them different is the way they operate.
Wiles Greenworld has measured its carbon footprint since 2008 and has achieved The Planet Mark since 2013.
In their second year of certification Wiles Greenworld have over taken their 5% target and achieved a 6.8% carbon reduction equal to 7.4% per £ turnover.
This reduction has been made by maintaining focus on sustainability throughout the business and through benefits achieved from investments made last year in equipment upgrades.
“This 6.8% reduction is particularly satisfying as a demonstration of the full year benefits from investments we made in the insulation and heating systems for our building. Let’s see what we can achieve this year!” Toby Robins, Sustainable Development Director, Wiles Greenworld.
Sustainability is embedded in this company. Amongst other initiatives, they have installed solar PV on the roof of their warehouse, offer a free recycling service to customers and provide advice to customers and suppliers on how to be more environmentally friendly.
Improving the social side of their sustainability, Wiles Greenworld are supporting their local community by funding sustainability workshops for four local primary schools. Run by the Eden Project Education Team, 500 pupils have now been part of workshops to learn about the environment and the effect they have on it.
