We believe that a successful business is one that takes into account its environmental impact. That’s why we’ve implemented a range of sustainable practices, from optimizing route planning to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, to using energy-efficient facilities, and promoting responsible waste management. At Valley, sustainability isn’t an afterthought – it’s a core principle that drives every decision we make.
The TEAM at Valley Distribution & Logistics share a firm belief in conservation and sustainability. We operate our facilities with 100% electric equipment. We currently have 30% of our space using LED lighting on individual motion sensors with the target of being 100% by the end of 2023. We utilize recycled corrugate and void fill in our pick and pack operations and do not use any plastics. We expect all our vendors to have sustainability programs in place as well.
Our operations are meticulously designed to minimize our environmental footprint. This includes strategically planning routes to reduce mileage and carbon emissions, utilizing energy-efficient warehousing and distribution facilities, and continually investing in eco-friendly technologies and practices. Our commitment to green operations reflects in every shipment we make, every route we plan, and every decision we take.
Responsible Waste Management
At Valley, we’re staunch advocates of the circular economy, dedicated to reducing, reusing, and recycling waste whenever possible. We have stringent waste management protocols in place that minimize waste generation and promote recycling. From mindful packaging to recycling programs for our offices and warehouses, we are committed to turning waste into a resource, reducing landfill, and supporting a sustainable future.

This means staying abreast of advancements in technology, processes, and best practices that can help us reduce our environmental impact.
