"To us, this report provides the valuable opportunity to in­troduce you to how we understand our environ­mental, social and governance responsibility, how we adopt it, and what we do to contribute to a healthy world," says Brian Tyler, Chairman of the Management Board of McKesson Europe.

The CR Report is based on the key figures from sustainability management in the 13 countries where the company is active.

Conversion to LED lighting and the introduction of electronic picking documents are examples of both company-wide and country-specific measures to increase Energy Efficiency and Material Reduction. For example, LED lighting will reduce energy consumption by about 40% for each warehouse. Switching to electronic picking documents in Germany will save 1.5 million sheets of paper per year, the equivalent of 500 trees. Insights into local and Europe-wide social responsibility initiatives, like McKesson employees’ volunteer work, round off the report.
