Reduce, reuse, recycle
Making the most of the resources we use and avoiding waste is central to our business idea. Avoiding unnecessary material use and applying smart methods to reuse and recycle helps reduce waste. But it also helps to decrease the need for virgin resources. Both mean fewer environmental impacts – and it can save money, too.
Manufacturing waste, transport and product packaging, shopping bags, shop fittings and waste from building new stores are all sources of waste generated across our value chain. Our vision is to send zero waste from our operations to landfill. But we do not want to stop there. We want to inspire and help our customers and business partners to reduce the waste that they generate.
