Growing Good Business
For almost 150 years Musgrave has been Growing Good Business. We didn’t call it that in the beginning, however we have always focused on growth but never at the cost of doing the right thing.
For the last 20 years we have been putting our own house in order, tackling waste to landfill, reducing emissions across our estate and within our transport fleet, sourcing 100% green energy for our buildings and much more. We were the first Irish company to sign up to the UN Global Compact, and the first food retail and wholesale group in Ireland to become a verified member of the Origin Green sustainability programme in 2016.
We have recorded significant results and reductions in our impacts, but yet we recognise this still isn’t enough. Today, our planet is facing a Climate Emergency with implications for future generations that could become irreversible in the next 10 years if leaders, businesses, and organisations don’t act today.
Working alone can only do so much to tackle the urgent crisis, but by working with partners, supporting stores and communities to make changes, and enabling shoppers to make conscious choices, we can achieve much more.
Our Sustainability Strategy is all about working with retail partners, suppliers and customers to make every community a sustainable community; it’s about shifting consumer behaviour by making it easier for shoppers to make sustainable choices; and it’s about reducing our carbon emissions to reach net zero carbon by 2040.
