Tech Data pushes sustainability

Tech Data is pushing forward with its net zero carbon commitments, announcing Kevin Wragg as Director, Environment and Quality Compliance. In this newly-created role Wragg, an experienced member of Tech Data’s senior leadership team, will drive forward the company’s plans to minimise its environmental impact. 

Wragg will be working with all areas of the business on actions and initiatives aimed
at taking Tech Data towards the attainment of its goals. The distie is already working with a net zero carbon consultancy named Arete Zero Carbon, which is led by Dr Stephen Finnegan to understand its current carbon footprint, and putting plans in place to accelerate towards the achievement of net zero carbon. 

In addition to the sustainability and environment agenda, Wragg will be working with teams across Tech Data to apply ISO standardisation of practices and processes. While Tech Data already has ISO9001 in place at its logistics centre in Magna Park, it is now planning to implement these standards throughout the UK business and to also apply the ISO14001 standard for Environmental Management Systems. 

He will also take on responsibility for ensuring that Tech Data meets all of the necessary regulatory requirements for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment recycling (WEEE) and disposes of electrical and electronic equipment ethically and efficiently.
