The call for action on climate change has never been louder. If we don’t act today, we will pay a very high price tomorrow. Recent evidence makes an unequivocal case that ‘urgent and unprecedented’ change from governments, business and citizens must start now. We are listening.
At Lidl GB, we’re building a strategy to tackle climate change that is built for the future, using the most up to date climate science to ensure we set the right long-term targets. In order to do this we have accurately measured the carbon footprint of our operations and supply chain, see our data in our latest sustainability report.
The foundation of our work to reduce emissions from transporting our products, is based on reducing food miles and exploring more efficient technologies.
We’ve worked closely with our logistics partners to plan the most efficient routes and opened more distribution centres. As a result we’ve reduced our carbon emissions per pallet transported by almost 40% since 2015.
We’re also trialling alternative fuels, such as gas, which have lower emission levels to further reduce our impact.
