Retailers meeting carbon emission targets 2 years early

August 12, 2019 EcoVadis FR


Leading retailers have cut their carbon emissions by a third since 2005, according to a new report from the British Retail Consortium. Almost 30 retailers have signed up to the Better Retail Better World initiative, including Morrisons, John Lewis, B&Q parent company Kingfisher, Sainsbury’s, Missguided and New Look. The initiative said retailers are now meeting their carbon emissions targets two years early, using the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a framework, which is said to focus on “clear, transparent and measurable goals for businesses”.
