Ensure our own-brand products won't contribute to global deforestation.

Our progress so far

  • Sector leader (Food and Staples Retailing) in the 2014 Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Forest Programme, recognising our efforts to reduce the risk of deforestation in our supply chains associated with the use of timber, palm oil, soya, beef/ leather and biofuels
  • 2.2 million trees planted with Woodland Trust since 2004 – equivalent to four Sherwood Forests. £3.5 million donated since we began our partnership
  • Recycled over 64 tonnes of Christmas cards from our store collection points, resulting in a donation of over £9,000 to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
  • 93 per cent of the wood used to make our own-brand products in 2013/14 was from FSC, Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), or recycled sources
