Sainsbury’s secures ‘A-List’ sustainability achievement for 10th year in a row

Sainsbury’s has secured a place on global environmental non-profit CDP’s ‘A List’ for the 10th consecutive year.

The place was awarded to the supermarket giant following CDP recognising its leadership in corporate transparency and performance on climate change, out of the 21,000 companies considered.

CDP’s assessment is made by allocating a score of A to D to companies, based on the comprehensiveness of disclosure and other factors, such as setting ambitious sustainability targets.

The new sustainability achievement follows Sainsbury’s target of becoming Net Zero across its operations by 2035 and value chain by 2050.

Last year, the grocery retailer launched a series of sustainable initiatives including a lower-carbon beef range and a fully electric delivery fleet at its Nine Elms London superstore.

Sainsbury’s also launched its most energy-efficient supermarket last year in Hook, Hampshre, which is projected to use only half the energy of a similar-sized store and around 25% less electricity.

The 25,000 sq ft supermarket utilises an array of energy-saving features and operates using 100% renewable electricity.
