Our Purpose-Led Performance (PLP) strategy is a journey, and while we have short- and medium-term goals in relation to water, solid waste and greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), we are implementing our long-term objective of embedding PLP into everything we do. Our new Maryland Logistics Center (MLC) is the latest example of how PLP is influencing our Global Supply Chain of the Future strategy, by employing best-in-class technologies to increase efficiency and storage density, while improving the site’s overall safety, quality, service, sustainability, and risk profile.
The MLC is at the forefront of innovation through supply chain modernization and optimization. Spanning over 1,800,000 square feet, the building is LEED Gold certified and has recently received approval to install a 2MW rooftop solar array. Dan Madigan, Senior Manager Distribution Strategy and Konrad Kutter, from our design engineer partner, CMTA, incorporated core sustainability principles as they planned the project.
