Protecting the planet and benefiting our communities
As Ireland’s largest private sector employer, and a business that feeds one in three people every day, at Musgrave we have a responsibility to leave a positive and lasting legacy for future generations. To do this we are focusing on driving lasting change by tackling areas including carbon emissions, waste, biodiversity and plastic packaging. At the same time, we are committed to supporting vibrant communities across the island of Ireland.
With our extensive network of retail partners, and relationships with thousands of suppliers and food producers, we can apply scale, innovation and investment locally, to inspire communities to respond to the climate emergency, and we can amplify the positive impact of community action across each of the markets in which we operate.
Our sustainability strategy is focused on three key areas: Caring for the planet, Sourcing for Good, and Creating Vibrant Communities, which are all about reducing our emissions to reach net zero carbon by 2040; working with our retail partners to make every community a sustainable community and working with suppliers to provide consumers with more sustainable shopping choices.
Musgrave has been reappointed as a UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Champion for 2023-2024 by the Irish Government due to our long-standing commitment to being a sustainable business and leading sustainability initiatives in Irish communities. In this role we will act as an advocate and promoter of the SDGs, demonstrating how other organisations can contribute to the SDGs and how we can all integrate them into our work and day to day lives.
