Story 5 - Retail Technology

UK-BASED grocery giant Tesco has received the highest accolade in China’s supply-chain industry — the Green Supply Chain award. Given by the Global Supply Chain Council in China at the CHaINA 2011 Awards, Asia’s Oscars for the supply-chain industry, Tesco was selected as the company that demonstrated “strong environmental leadership and a firm commitment to promote ‘green’ in China”.

The company, which has set a target of being a zero carbon business by 2050, has already reduced carbon emissions by 35% since deploying innovative solutions to curb waste at its green distribution centre in Jiashan, Zhejiang. The facility, which opened this July, now requires between 40% and 45% less water and electricity than regular warehouses in the country.

“We are extremely proud to have won this award in China. As one of the world’s leading retailers, we recognise our responsibility to protect the environment and we have made great strides in reducing our emissions in China,” said Helen Fleming, Tesco’s group climate change director. ra
