Our customers, who are some of the world’s leading brands, are being put under pressure by their consumers to reduce their plastic waste footprint. It’s a complex challenge: the daily running of their businesses depends on the products we provide and there are many plastic products where no viable alternative exists today. But we’re determined to rise to the challenge. Our scale and unique position at the center of the distribution system gives us a powerful opportunity to be part of the solution. We can offer alternatives to single-use plastics, and plastics that are more recyclable and compostable, because we aren’t wedded to any particular materials. We’re agile when it comes to changing our range and see this as an opportunity for growth in both our customers’ businesses and our own. We’re improving our service to customers with clear information on the total environmental impact of the products we distribute. We’re also exploring ways to connect supplier innovation with customer needs to develop more sustainable solutions. It won’t happen overnight but in time we believe we can help contribute to a world without plastic waste in our environment – working with our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders to make this crucial shared goal a reality.
