Supermarket announces carbon reduction plans

Supermarket announces carbon reduction plans
Tesco has announced a new partnership with an environmental technology firm as it tries to meet ambitious carbon reduction targets.

The supermarket stated two years ago that it intends to cut its carbon footprint in half across its worldwide operations.

CA ecoSoftware has joined with the UK's largest retailer to help achieve this target through energy efficiency measures and IT innovation.

Mike Yorwerth, IT director of Tesco plc, explained that streamlining environmental efforts requires large-scale organisation.

He said: "We're also overseeing hundreds of projects around the world designed to reduce our carbon footprint, all of which need to be prioritised and measured."

"From investigating ways to reduce energy costs and mitigating climate change risks facing the organisation, to seizing emerging opportunities, organisations are taking action," added ecoSoftware senior vice president and general manager Terrence Clark.

There are around 468,000 employees working for Tesco at more than 4,000 locations in 14 different countries.
