You won’t find another sweeping statement about how we run our business in the ‘greenest’ way possible and we don’t claim to be saving the world with a few generic environmental policies, that would be ridiculous, but as a company and as a group of individuals we do realise that we can make a difference.

Waste is something that we should all oppose, there is no gain in any form of being wasteful, waste costs money, stretches resources and it screams of inefficiency and incompetence.

Here at the Wagstaff group we hope to set a new level of social and environmental awareness and in doing so we have taken a holistic approach to encompass more than just a reuse and recycle policy. Our CSR is more than just a statement of good intent, we have broken it down into real processes that we have implemented and which will continue to develop and grow in the future, for the good.

Some time ago we sat down and discussed how we could run our business in a more efficient and effective manner, back then big changes were made to implement this and at the same time reduce our carbon emissions.

The changes:

Transportation

We outsourced our transportation to specialist companies to take advantage of the consolidation of deliveries and maximization of loads. Also routing and scheduling vehicles helps to minimise mileage whilst continuing to meet customer demands across the country.

Warehousing

We also outsourced our warehousing operations to specialist locally positioned companies to reduce energy consumption by sharing and managing furniture distribution all under one roof. At Wagstaff we realize, that due to the nature of our business our carbon emissions are relatively low. (see our article on How are we doing?) As well as the fundamental changes we have made to our business over the years, we have also made a series of small internal steps across our company nationally, to help reduce our environmental impact even further. We realize that these small steps can make a BIG difference if we all get involved.
