Our Supply Chain

Given the variety and volume of products stocked and sold by Banner, the high number of suppliers and the array of customers across the UK, it is no surprise that Supply Chain forms a most significant part of our economic, social and environmental footprint. Ensuring the right level of management is vitally important with sustainable and ethical procurement forming a fundamental part of that process. Banner is committed to ensuring a robust and diverse supply base with whom we work collaboratively to bring about innovation in product, packaging and delivery on an ongoing basis.

Trust & transparency: What we’re doing

Given the innumerable list of challenges and demands within the strands of supply chain, the agility and adaptiveness of our colleagues is an absolute must. That said, it is imperative our relationships and buying decisions are underpinned by our commitment to Responsible Procurement. The themes within our Supply Chain pillar will support this over the coming years. We are ensuring a wider and wider range of sustainable products, improved packaging and enhanced supplier compliance through audits and regular reviews to ensure adherence to our Code of Conduct.


Net Zero By 2030
As a step towards our 2030 Net Zero target for the whole business, Banner commits to mitigating the carbon footprint of our entire delivery fleet by 2027. In the meantime, work continues in the management of our fleet of 370 Truline vehicles with all of them meeting low emission zone targets. The latest electric vehicles and charge points have been installed in strategic locations and the rollout of our comprehensive vehicle monitoring software is almost complete. We are committed to delivering responsibly to our customers and look forward to bring news of our decarbonisation activities as they progress.
Truline Trucks
Investing in our delivery fleet is an ongoing focus. During 2019 we began the process of replacing our entire vehicle fleet with the latest fuel and emission efficient diesel engines. The expectation is that these vehicles will deliver up to a 7% improvement in mpg.
