We're cutting down our carbon footprint
With daily deliveries to our stores, we have a responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment. Reducing our carbon footprint & saving costs go hand in hand when delivering better value to you, our customers.
We audit our environmental impact and improvements through the Carbon Trust and other third parties and have reduced our carbon footprint by 24% since 2007.*
Increased fuel efficiency – every litre of fuel we use now takes us 8% further than it did in 2009.( did you know that in 2013 we will have saved over 1 million kilometers in truck journeys – that is the equivalent of driving around the world 25 times!
Achieved the Carbon Trust Standard accreditation in 2009, 2011, and 2013 for reducing our carbon footprint year on year.
Ensured 94% of our stores’ waste is now recycled (and we're working on the next 6%).
