Canada curbs fuel and energy consumption

Wolseley Canada moved a significant proportion of its cross-country deliveries from road to rail in 2015.

The change brings both supply chain efficiencies and environmental benefits as approximately 1,800 tonnes of carbon are avoided per year.

An environmental committee, including employees from operations, finance, sourcing, legal, supply chain, facilities and communication teams, oversees a number of projects to improve the sites or activities that generate the most carbon or waste.
