Sustainability is a journey. It is a long-term investment on the environment that we live and work. We believe those who will be most successful must evaluate where they are currently, and track their progress and improvements on a continuous basis.
The IWLA Sustainability Council provides resources and tools to help members track their consumption and energy and those who track their progress will receive recognition for their success.
IWLA Sustainability Council Annual Survey
The IWLA Sustainability Council Annual Survey is our method for identifying the interests of the council members and using your feedback to guide future programming/content. The annual survey also serves as a tool for understanding the different improvements areas for sustainability.
Each year, council members are asked to share their feedback with us and IWLA will publish aggregate data to allow council members to view these trends that are specific to the warehouse logistics industry.
