Wyke Farms: Our green journey
This presentation demonstrates how Wyke Farms identified resource risks in its supply chain and made the changes needed to guarantee operational resilience, with practical examples including costs vs pay-back, business drivers, and lessons learned.
Sustainability is still seen as something that's "nice to have rather than essential" for big businesses - an assumption which is stifling the UK's transition to a green economy.
That's the view of Rich Clothier, the managing director of Wyke Farms. As Britain's largest family-owned cheese company, Wyke Farms has recently implemented the100 % Green initiative;reducing water use by up to 850,000 litres a day and fuelling the business entirely from onsite renewable energy
In this presentation, given at Sustainability Live 2015 last month, Clothier explained why Wyke Farms chose to go green; the various initiatives the company is now undertaking; and the tangible benfits these initiatives are now having on Wyke Farms and the environment.
