LWC completes sustainable installation at Cornwall depot

LWC Drinks has completed the installation of 160 solar panels at its Cornwall depot, with the new panels set to generate 90,000 kwh of renewable energy annually.

The move will bring the depot up to the same green standard as its Hereford and Aylesbury sites, which already benefit from solar energy. Furthermore, LWC also launched a sustainability committee this month.

Managing director Ebrahim Mukadam said: “As a growing, national wholesaler, we have a responsibility to operate in a way that supports both people and planet, and making on-going sustainable updates across the business is a significant part of this.

“I’m proud that these latest updates at our Cornwall depot means that our Cornish customers can trade with the confidence that they are partnering with a supplier that is committed to a more sustainable future. With 17 sites, we know that we are just breaking the tip of the solar panel iceberg, but this is a journey we are committed to and will continue the roll out across other sites over the coming months and years,” he added.
