Building sustainable supply chains

WTA is working with the Book Chain Project to help build a sustainable supply chain and is committed to finding ways of reducing the quantity and type of shrink-wrap used and exploring recyclable and renewable materials. We understand that the environment is of the utmost importance to many businesses, so we have developed our state-of-the-art CO2 calculator which gives you the ability to benchmark your footprint and set relevant reduction goals.
