Tesco has selected 2degrees, an online community of sustainability professionals, to help it reduce its supply chain carbon footprint by 30 per cent by 2020.
2degrees has set up a dedicated Tesco Carbon Reduction Knowledge Hub which encourages some 200 of Tesco’s suppliers to engage and collaborate with each other, and to share best practice.
The hub is an area within 2degrees’ online platform which is exclusive to Tesco suppliers. It is facilitated by 2degrees, while Tesco is actively involved in the online discussions, focussed on driving down carbon emissions.
Andrew Hill, climate change manager at Tesco, said: “The 2degrees Knowledge Hub has worked really well and we are looking forward to rolling out the programme to many more of our UK suppliers.”
