More than 60 major retailers in the UK have joined forces to support British Retail Consortium’s (BRC) Climate Action Roadmap to reach net-zero by 2040.

In July, 20 leading retailers came together through BRC and signed a declaration for the development of a roadmap.

The roadmap builds upon the Better Retail Better World campaign and aims to bring the retail industry and its supply chains to net-zero ten years ahead of the government’s 2050 target.

It also aims to power stores and warehouses with net-zero electricity by 2030.

British Retail Consortium chief executive Helen Dickinson OBE said: “Climate change is a threat that none of us can afford to ignore.

“The BRC Climate Action Roadmap is a clear and decisive statement that the retail industry is ready to take on this challenge – to be part of the solution.

“By 2040, we want every UK customer to be able to make purchases – in store and online – safe in the knowledge that they are not contributing to global heating.

“Never before has an entire industry been so ambitious in tackling climate change.

“Retail is the critical gateway between vast international supply chains and every one of us as citizens.

“We have a fantastic opportunity to make a real global difference if we can all work collectively.”

Detailed plans for the roadmap will be made known at the UNFCCC Race to Zero Dialogues.
