Supermarket giant wants to slash emissions 60% by 2025

UK supermarket giant Tesco is making a firm, long-term commitment to the fight against climate change, according to the Business Green.

Tesco made a promise to slash its own operational greenhouse emissions 60% by 2025 and 100% by 2050. Furthermore, it promised to run on 100% renewable energy by 2030. It became the first UK supermarket to have its climate change plans approved by the Science Based Targets initiative.

Despite the impressive nature of the goals, there’s still a lot of thinks that remain unresolved. Gareth Redmond-King, WWF’s head of climate change and energy, drew attention to the fact that Tesco is a major retailer of gasoline and diesel due to their gas stations.


The easiest impact that any company can have is taking on its own operational emissions first, as the Tree Hugger reports. This way, more ambitious efforts to transform supply chains further will be made.
