By 2020, we'll have reduced our operational carbon emissions by 30 per cent absolute and 65 per cent relative, compared with 2005* (this is part of our broader target of an absolute carbon reduction of 50 per cent by 2030).

*'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.
