Lightening Our Footprint
The group takes part in the Carbon Disclosure Project on a yearly basis and set targets in the submission. The targets help the company to improve the carbon footprint of the business through different channels.
There is an increase in the total emissions which is largely driven by increased electricity usage due to the expansions in stores, head office and the UPD distribution. To manage the use of electricity better, investments are made in energy metering to be able to look at more accurate and relevant data for the business. The meters help to check the actual usage against municipality bills and to change the behaviour of employees to improve energy used for the group.
Lightening our footprint is not only focused on carbon but also on waste disposal and water usage. New products in the industry are continuously explored to improve the footprint of the group.
