Burberry is carbon neutral across US and EMEIA Retail
We are proud to announce we are carbon neutral across our operations in US and EMEIA Retail. We have reached this milestone by driving energy efficiency throughout our stores in the US and EMEIA and reinvesting the associated cost savings into the procurement of renewable energy.
In 2017, we set a goal to become carbon neutral in our own operations by 2022, including a commitment to procure 100% of our energy from renewable sources. We are on track to meet this goal, and during 2017/18 sourced 48% of our total energy (including 56% of our electricity) from renewable sources. We also achieved a 20% reduction in market-based carbon emissions compared to a base year in 2016/17.
In addition to this, we are working with RE100 to drive wider demand for low carbon power and encourage all providers to introduce renewable energy options.
