I would be interested in: 1. How the performance varied between the UK locations. 2.What your normal electrical consumption would be and by how much 'bought in' electricity has been reduced plus any credits from selling any surplus. 3. What has been the capital cost so far. Regards

This is really good news and it gives me hope for the future. I'm just a regular Sainsbury's customer and I was not aware of your waste programme until I found this article while looking up your policy on the use of palm oil. Your food waste policy and other efforts are makes me stop and search the internet for a local Sainsbury's instead of walking in to the first supermarket I see in the area I'm visiting. Together we will change the future. Thank you and keep up the good work.

Are you currently doing anything to use less water and if so, what? > don't use bottled water, use the washing machine & dishwasher only on full loads. How do you think companies like Sainsbury's should address this issue? > JS should be bold & lead change
