I am delighted to let you know that we won the Excellence in Waste Management award at the national Green Awards which took place in Dublin this week.
The Green Awards is a leading platform for sustainability leadership and innovation in best green practice in Ireland. Now in its twelfth year, the awards celebrate the extraordinary contribution and commitment that companies now make towards growing a greener future in Irish business today.
I am proud that this award recognises our end to end approach to waste management, including our work on food waste.
This focus on tackling food waste has seen us divert a total of 7 million meals away from waste in our stores and distribution centres since 2014 through our partnership with FoodCloud, which is equivalent to the environmental saving of 9,339 tonnes of CO2 emissions associated with waste processing.
Well done to everyone involved.
