Reducing our emissions by 60% by 2030
We are aware that our activities as a retailer contribute to climate change through emissions of greenhouse gasses and consumption of natural resources. We therefore strive to reduce the emissions from our own operations by 60% by 2030. Energy use in our stores, distribution centres and outbound logistics (like transport of products from distribution centres to stores) emit greenhouse gases. These direct emissions (Scope 1) and indirect emissions from purchased electricity (Scope 2) are at the heart of our energy and emission reduction strategy. Our ambition is to reduce our Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 60% by 2030 (versus the 2021 baseline).
In 2022, we lowered our energy use, increased our share of renewable energy and introduced HVO biodiesel for our self-owned trucks. As a result, our scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions were reduced by 40%.
