In 2017, Wolseley Canada established its Environmental Committee to focus on the achievement of the company’s five-year targets and joined Sustainable Hamilton Burlington at the end of 2018. Throughout the year, the company focused on increasing its recycling efforts, reducing paper and packing material waste and finding ways to increase energy efficiency. Wolseley Canada is proud to be a member of Sustainable Hamilton Burlington.
Wolseley Canada, market leader in the wholesale distribution of plumbing, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration, waterworks, fire protection, pipes, valves and fittings and industrial products, is headquartered in Burlington, with approximately 2,700 employees in over 230 locations coast to coast.
In 2015/16, Wolseley Canada’s parent company, Ferguson plc, set global five-year targets to reduce carbon by 10 percent, waste by 15 percent per $m revenue and increase recycling to 40 percent. Ferguson supported the establishment of regional committees to ensure delivery against this commitment.
