WESCO International Publishes First Sustainability Report

PITTSBURGH, May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  WESCO International (NYSE: WCC), a leading provider of electrical, industrial, and communications MRO and OEM products, construction materials, and advanced supply chain management and logistics services, released its first Corporate Sustainability Report outlining key programs and achievements across five areas of focus: Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Energy Efficiency, Fleet Fuel Use, Waste and Recycling, and Green Buildings.

"The release of this report demonstrates WESCO's commitment to consistently improve the sustainability of our operations, as well as those of our customers," said John Engel, Chairman, President, and CEO, WESCO International. "We're pleased to be able to outline our approach, share the progress we've made to date, and establish metrics to measure our progress."

Over the past three years, WESCO has improved its energy efficiency, increased recycling, reduced waste generation, and reduced both greenhouse gas intensity and emissions. In 2012, WESCO surpassed its 2015 goals for greenhouse gas intensity, building energy consumption, and waste generation intensity.

"WESCO is well positioned to help our customers improve their energy efficiency and reduce costs in their operations," John Engel continued. "WESCO's Value Creation Search for Savings program identifies ways companies can make improvements in the areas of lighting, energy management, renewable energy, water and waste mitigation, and green procurement."

Lighting upgrades are one of the most-effective ways to reduce energy consumption, and WESCO's lighting team assists customers with the selection of energy-efficient technology and lighting control systems. WESCO's Lighting and Sustainability Solutions Centers in Boston and Chicago showcase a wide range of lighting applications allowing customers to make the most-informed lighting decisions.

WESCO's solar team educates customers about the benefits of using solar panels and other products for both commercial and residential applications. In Phoenix, WESCO installed its first integrated solar car port and electric vehicle charging station, a prototype for an integrated solar and EV solution the company now offers to customers. The Phoenix facility is also the hub for WESCO's renewable energy training program for solar system installers.
