Footprint is produced following GHG protocol.
*'Absolute' emissions reduction targets are defined by the GHG Protocol as goals to 'reduce absolute emissions over time'. Relative emissions reduction targets are defined as goals to 'reduce the ratio of emissions relative to a business metric over time'. In the case of supermarkets, the relative is defined as relative to square footage of stores.
Sainsbury's is committed to reducing its carbon emissions and is set to meet the target of reducing store carbon footprints by 30%.
