Asda Expands Sustainability Scheme After £13m Savings

Asda is planning to expand its sustainability collaboration programme, Sustain & Save Exchange, for its suppliers, after the supermarket announced that it saved £13m through sustainability innovations over the past year.

The scheme, launched in early 2012, enables Asda and its suppliers to share knowledge and innovations in energy, waste and water efficiency through an online portal.

A sixth of Asda's total supplier base, responsible for more than £3bn in products, are already represented on the Exchange, which will now be rolled out across the retailer's entire fresh, frozen and chilled supply chains. This will make it the biggest programme for supplier collaboration on resource efficiency and sustainability in the UK.”
