We will transform our business to become Net Zero carbon in our own operations by 2040 in line with science.
- We will invest €25 million in energy and carbon reduction in our stores through freezer and refrigeration upgrades, LED lighting, solar panels and digital price labels. The energy saved is equivalent to powering 3,000 homes per year.
- Over the past year, 120 SuperValu stores have achieved a reduction of 3,703 tonnes of carbon. This is equivalent to planting 138,412 trees.
- In June 2023, we announced the roll out of Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) fuel across our network of almost 500 vehicles. By 2030, 50% of the fleet will operate on alternative fuel, with an overall ambition for the entire fleet to be net zero by 2040. HVO is a fossil-fuel free biofuel and provides up to 90% reduction in C02 emissions per litre of fuel used.
