M&S and Co-op named greenest supermarkets

M&S and Co-op named greenest supermarkets
Marks & Spencer and the Co-op have been named as the greenest British supermarkets in a new report.

Ethical Consumer magazine praised both stores for their eco-credentials, with special mention being made of the Co-op's policy on sourcing fish and Marks & Spencer's palm oil sourcing.

The Co-op was also said to aim to get 98 percent of its energy from renewable sources at its 5,500 sites around the country.

Rob Harrison, co-author of the report, said: "These two companies have made genuine efforts to reduce the environmental and ethical impact of their operations and have demonstrated that they are setting the environmental agenda for supermarkets."

Of the 19 other supermarkets and convenience stores researched for the survey, Tesco, Asda and Netto were named as the worst performers.

Meanwhile, research from Imperial College London and E.ON found customers' perceptions of large brands could be damaged by a poor ranking in the Carbon Reduction Commitment league table.

The study found consumers are likely to consult the rankings to determine how leading brands compare to their rivals.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800306674-ADNFCR
