Tesco boss Murphy urges government to stand by net-zero targets

Ken Murphy Tesco

Tesco’s chief executive Ken Murphy has called on political parties to stand by the country’s net-zero commitments and give businesses more confidence to invest in green innovations.

Speaking at the Reuters Impact event in London, Murphy said green innovation in the food industry could be transformational in cutting food costs, carbon emissions, protecting the UK’s food security and stimulating growth in sustainable technologies.

Murphy warned that the government must do more to support retail’s transition to sustainability solutions, as the UK’s level of investment remains well below the average for OECD countries.
