Tesco Ireland plans to cut carbon dioxide emissions by converting waste food from the chain’s Irish stores into natural gas.

The supermarket giant expects to reduce emissions by 1,200 tonnes every year with this renewable gas initiative, which comes as a result of its partnership with the anaerobic digestion company Green Generation.
