Wrigley set to cut carbon

By Gavin Kermack , 20-Nov-2008

 

Chewing gum manufacturer Wrigley has announced plans to reduce its carbon footprint in Western Europe.

 

The Chicago-based firm sought the advice of IT group Infosys Technologies, who identified ways in which it could cut carbon emissions from its logistics operations by 20 per cent.

 

“Managing our impact on the environment is an integral part of Wrigley corporate philosophy,” said Ian Robertson, head of supply chain sustainability.

 

“We’re committed to making improvements across all operations but need an integrated enterprise system to measure progress. Infosys provided that solution and services to empower that process.”
