Tesco has committed to becoming net-zero across its supply chain by 2050 as the grocer ramps up its efforts to tackle climate change.

Britain’s biggest retailer has pledged to produce net zero emissions, including those generated by the products it sells and across its supply chains, in line with the United Nations’ goal to keep global warming below 1.5°C. 

Often referred to as Scope 3 emissions, Tesco’s 2050 target covers not just the carbon produced in its own operations but by its food producers, suppliers and other partners involved in the value chain.
