ESG/Ethical Impact

The planet is facing a climate emergency and we acknowledge our responsibility to do everything we can to reduce our environmental impact. We want to make Greggs a carbon neutral, zero waste business. We actively support the British Retail Consortium’s Climate Action Roadmap which aims to make the UK’s retail industry net zero. In addition, we’re reducing our use of packaging, looking at how we can apply ‘circular economy’ thinking to our business, and working with our suppliers to make efficient use of resources. Our Net Zero Taskforce is challenging the climate impact of every area of our operations and driving action to reduce it. We aim to be Net Zero by 2040 – a decade earlier than the UK government’s plan.The design of our shops and the equipment we use within them are a key focus as we look for ways to reduce the environmental impact of our operations. Our new Eco-Shop format gives us a platform to develop and test solutions to minimise our impact on the environment by cutting our waste, energy and water usage. By 2025, 25% of our shops will feature elements from our eco-shop ‘store of the future’ design. We have pledged to cut the weight of packaging we use by a quarter. That includes not only what our food and drinks come wrapped in and the bag a customer uses to carry them out, but also our secondary packaging that’s used to bring our products into shops.We aim to be Net Zero by 2040 – a decade earlier than the UK government’s plan for all emissions including our value chain. The climate emergency requires swift, radical action so we have set up a Net Zero Taskforce to challenge the climate impact of every area of our operations and drive action to reduce it. We started thinking about carbon back in 2010 and, by 2015, had reduced the carbon intensity of our business by around a quarter. Since then, we’ve held the Carbon Trust Standard in recognition of our ongoing efforts to reduce carbon from our own operations. Electricity use makes up around 60% of our footprint, so reducing its impact was a priority. We now only purchase green electricity from the grid and, where we rent our properties, are in discussions with the building owners to switch their electricity supplier to a carbon neutral source too. Gas is more challenging as green gas is less widely available but – given it represents 10% of our direct footprint – we are determined to either stop using it or switch to biogas. For instance, as we refit shops, we’re switching over to electric systems for heating and water. Our goal is to be using 100% renewable energy across our operations by 2025.
