Our retail environment is so much more than simply transactional spaces, they are the platform for our brand vision, our values and gathering spaces for our community.
Within our sustainability programme we are re-thinking retail in a way that instils responsible behaviours within our company whilst offering a platform to influence our communities.
In our 60 years of history, we spread out our retail operation globally and we know that there is lots of work to be done ahead of us, as we strive to be part of the solution. We are working to utilise sustainable materials in our stores, such as certified timber, reconditioned shop fixtures or using bespoke recycled materials. We are also aware that we must use technology to operate our stores in a smart way such as adopting best practices in energy efficient lighting, climate control and waste management. Currently 100% of our UK our stores are supplied by renewable energy – we continue to work towards achieving this in all our owned and operated sites.
This is the start of a journey for us, but we are determined to adopt best possible solutions to bring sustainability into the retail environment.
