Caring for the planet

Today our planet is facing a Climate Emergency, we need to radically reduce our impacts, and act with a sense of urgency if we are to reverse the damage already done. At Musgrave we are committed to becoming net zero carbon by 2040. This target gives us a long-term focus on systematic and consistent improvements across our business and brands to reduce emissions. For example, we have already reduced our fleet emissions by more than 30% (between 2006-2020), despite the business growing significantly, and we power all our Group buildings with Green Energy. Reducing our emissions to net zero by 2040 will involve at least a 46% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030, to achieve the goal.

Plastic remains a problem, which is as much about packaging changes as it is changing consumer behaviour. Our strategy is to eliminate non-recyclable packaging across in-store and own brand products, and where we have to use packaging to preserve food to minimise food waste it will be recyclable, reusable or compostable – this has already been achieved in more than 90% of own brand products in SuperValu and Centra. In addition, with our retailers, we will encourage customers to make more sustainable choices and consider the manner in which they shop.

Supporting communities

As Ireland’s largest private sector employer, and a business that feed one in three people every day 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 grassroots action across the island of Ireland.
