Asda to halve scope 1 & 2 emissions by 2025

The supermarket pledges to work closely with suppliers to reduce its carbon footprint, which it suggests is one of the ‘greatest opportunities’ to find efficiencies

Asda has committed to halving its scope 1 & 2 emissions by 2025 from a 2015 baseline.

The supermarket suggests the move is necessary to keep its carbon footprint aligned with limiting global warming to below 1.5°C and pledges to work closely with suppliers to reduce its carbon footprint, which it suggests is one of the "greatest opportunities" to find efficiencies.

Under the Walmart umbrella, the firm is also committed to reaching the larger target of removing a billion tonnes of emissions globally and notes 179 Asda suppliers have already signed up to this commitment, saving 29 million metric tonnes of emissions.
