The way we run our store operations, dispose of waste and transport our products can have a significant environmental impact.
To minimise our environmental footprint, we have set targets to:
- Zero waste to landfill by 2018
- 20% reduction in carbon emissions by 2020.
We will meet our targets by applying more sustainable design standards to our stores, support offices and distribution centres. Initiatives include smarter recycling systems, retrofitting lighting and monitoring energy and carbon use.
Our partnership and industry-first store standard with the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) will significantly minimise our environmental footprint. Our aim is to create awareness and encourage the retail industry to deliver similar initiatives.
We strive to limit the waste generated from our products and our operations. We continually identify more sustainable solutions to designing our transport and product packaging.
