Why is it material to Wolseley?
|Environmental efficiency||Better energy and waste management decreases costs and improves operational efficiencies.||Energy costs and increasing "green" taxes can reduce Wolseley's profit margins. We have reduction targets in place to minimise these costs.|
|Compliance with the law||Compliance with legal regulations gives us a license to operate.||The risk of non-compliance with increasing levels of governmental regulations is a priority.|
|Protecting information||Robust systems and processes together with an informed workforce reduce the risk of losing sensitive or commercial data.||Information security is one of our principle tasks.|
