Sainsbury’s to become Net Zero by 2040
Commenting on plans by Sainsbury’s to become Net Zero by 2040, Friends of the Earth’s head of policy Mike Childs said:
“It’s encouraging to see Sainsbury’s stepping up to the plate on the climate emergency – the rapid transition to a net zero economy is urgently required.
“Supermarkets have a huge influence on our personal carbon footprints, so the more they can do to embrace and promote greener lifestyles the better for us all.
“Supporting the switch to a more plant-based diet is particularly important – eating less, but better quality, meat and dairy would be healthier for people and the planet.
“The influence supermarket chains have over suppliers is also huge - they must use that to ratchet up higher environmental standards while ensuring a fair deal for farmers.”
