The John Lewis Partnership has announced it is bringing forward its net zero goal by 15 years to 2035.

It has set out a series of new sustainability measures including Waitrose‘s commitment to source only from net zero carbon farms in the UK by 2035.

The brand of British supermarkets will also extend to its supply chain its pledge to halve food waste in its own operations by 2030 and will also work to help halve its customers’ household food waste by the same timeframe.

John Lewis has also committed to ensuring all key raw materials in its own-brand products will be from sustainable or recycled sources by 2025.

Sharon White, Chairman of the John Lewis Partnership, said: “We are adapting successfully to how customers want to shop today while showing the Partnership is improving lives and building a more sustainable future.”

Nina Bhatia, Executive Director of Strategy and Commercial Development at the John Lewis Partnership, said: “We’re creating new inspirational services for customers where strong ethical values and peace of mind matter, like reusing and recycling products, personal savings and rented housing.”
