Tesco partners with WWF to track foods’ environmental impact


Tesco has joined forces with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to track the environmental impact of some of the UK’s most popular foods.

The supermarket giant will work with the not-for-profit organisation on what it has dubbed a “ground-breaking” Sustainable Basket Metric.

The tool will assess the environmental impact of staple grocery products such as bread, milk, bananas, salad tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, free-range eggs, salmon fillets, steak mince and canned tuna chunks.

Foods will be tracked against seven key criteria: climate change, deforestation, sustainable diets, sustainable agriculture, marine sustainability, food waste and packaging waste.
