Sustainability

Planet

We’re investing to set science-based targets and become a carbon-neutral business by 2040.

As part of our commitment to the British Retail Consortium’s Roadmap to Net Zero, we will reach net zero in direct emissions from our operations by 2025, with our entire product value chain from supplier to customer reaching net zero by 2040.

In our most significant step towards net zero during 2020/21, we switched to renewably sourced energy for all of our UK operations, reducing our carbon footprint by approximately 70%.

To play our part in tackling climate change, we are now working with environmental reporting expert Carbon Intelligence to map and analyse our total carbon footprint, before setting science-based carbon reduction targets.
