Iceland is a signatory to the Courtauld Commitment 2030. This ambitious voluntary agreement brings together organisations across the food industry to make food and drink production and consumption more sustainable.
In 2020 we updated our targets to reduce our carbon footprint across our own operation and supply chain by:
50% reduction in absolute GHG emissions by 2030
Net Zero for electricity use by 2030
Net zero for UK fuel, gas and refrigerant gas by 2035
Net zero for all products sold in the UK by 2040
In February 2021 we were the first food retailer globally to sign up to the Amazon Climate Pledge, a commitment to be net-zero by 2040 – a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement’s goal of 2050.
Iceland worked with the Carbon Trust to measure its scope 3 carbon footprint in 2021. The Carbon Trust will also be reviewing our scope 1 & 2 emissions to validate its methodology and to ensure no areas are overlooked within both scope’s calculations.
