Our environmental responsibility

At WGO we lead by example on environmental policy and green issues. From running a fleet of dual-fuel eco-friendly delivery vans, ISO Accreditation and paper-free deliveries, we pride ourselves on meeting our environmental responsibility. We can assist you too. We supply a fantastic range of green and environmentally friendly products by wholesalers such as Exertis

Environmental policy and products

The business currently sells more than 2400 products which have a recyclable content of 50% or more. WG is continually attempting to increase this number of products within the portfolio with the assistance of suppliers.

Packaging that fits with our environmental policy

WG’s delivery boxes are the most efficient way of providing a one way delivery package. The design of the box ensures that the products arrive undamaged to their destination and 95% of the products are packaged in fully recyclable cardboard with other materials kept to a minimum and only used when no other form of packaging can be utilised.

WG is continually investigating ways to improve the business’s waste disposal operations at all locations in order to minimise the effect on the environment. Wherever possible, reusable plastic boxes are within the warehouse and transportation to and from suppliers and local branches.

Printing and Publications

WG continues to make more information available in a green Save £1000s on your business supplies spenddigital catalogue format eliminating postage and printing. This is available at wgo.co.uk and provides an environmentally responsible solution. A rebrand of this solution with improved functionality and product range will be available in July 2017.

WG also continues to process customer artwork approvals for publications and mailers using a web based solution, minimising the impact on the environment by reducing the necessity to print sample-marketing material prior to actual order.

The business will continue to evaluate and optimise how it processes Print and Publication orders to ensure it continues to reduce its impact on the environment.
