Retailers join forces for net zero sustainability push


Some of the biggest names in retail have backed a drive to address the causes of climate change ahead of the government’s target.

The initiative, coordinated by the British Retail Consortium (BRC), is designed to “develop a ground-breaking decarbonisation plan that will guide the industry on the steps necessary to accelerate progress to a Net Zero UK” ahead of the official target date of 2050.

Aldi, Amazon, Boots UK, Central England Co-operative, the Co-op, Costa Coffee, Dixons Carphone, Greggs, Ikea UK and Ireland, Kingfisher, Lidl GB, Marks & Spencer, Missguided, Morrisons, Musgrave, Next, Ocado Retail, TJX UK and WHSmith are all supporting the push.
