Our success depends on a healthy planet. We're working hard to use natural resources with care, reduce waste and cut greenhouse gas emissions.
Why are we taking action?
The food systems that we rely on are in trouble. They’re threatened by the climate crisis, deforestation and the overuse of natural resources. It’s important that we play our part in solving these problems.
Today, we’re already making a difference. We have reduced our greenhouse gas emissions from our own operations by 17% between 2019 and 2022.
Good planning and giving surplus food to good causes means we create less food waste. We’re also proud to sell ‘wonky’ fruit and veg.
To tackle plastic pollution, for example, we were the first supermarket to use paper ‘bags for life’ instead of plastic, and we have removed all the plastic bags from our bananas and replaced them with a recyclable paper band.
And we’re taking care to buy our food in a way that doesn’t damage forests or ecosystems.
