Wm Morrison Supermarkets : Morrisons Works with Food and Drink Suppliers to Reduce Greenhouse Gases

12/14/2021 EDT

- Industry-leading software given to hundreds of own-brand suppliers to measure and reduce carbon emissions -

Morrisons is working with its own-brand suppliers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as part of its commitment to lower the amount of carbon emitted in its wider supply chain.

Own-brand suppliers will be encouraged to reduce the greenhouse emissions associated with the sourcing, manufacture and transportation of their products. By working together, Morrisons hopes to achieve a 30 per cent reduction in supply chain Scope 3 carbon emissions by 2030.

Morrisons will initially offer 400 of its own-brand suppliers access to a new industry-leading software platform called Manufacture 2030. The tool will help suppliers to accurately measure, track and forecast their operational carbon emissions.

It will also provide guidance and advice on reducing emissions - via expert recommendations, monthly webinars and peer-to-peer problem solving. This will focus on operational emissions, energy efficiency, on-site renewable energy generation, and waste to landfill - while making processes more resource and cost efficient. All of Manufacture 2030's content aligns with the World Wildlife Fund, Science Based Target Initiative and the Waste Resources Action Programme best practice methodology.

Own-brand suppliers have been invited at no cost to join the environmental programme. Morrisons will fund the cost of the tool for each of its own-brand suppliers. The programme will be rolled out to a wider group of suppliers in phases throughout 2022.

Steve Butts, Head of Corporate Services at Morrisons, said: "We're asking our own-brand suppliers to join with us to tackle greenhouse gas emissions. As Morrisons is 'vertically integrated' - we manufacture more than half of the fresh food we sell - we're in a unique position to be able to offer support to the industry. We expect that this programme will remove thousands of tonnes of carbon from our supply chain a year - to make it easier for our customers to reduce the footprint of their shopping baskets."

Morrisons has brought forward its commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions in its own operations - from 2040 to 2035 - five years earlier than initially pledged and 15 years ahead of the UK government's target to decarbonise all sectors of the UK economy by 2050.

Morrisons is ahead of forecast in reducing its operational carbon emissions. A 33 per cent cut in carbon emissions was promised by 2025, and the current reduction has already reached 32 per cent - saving almost 300,000 tonnes of CO2 since 2017.

Morrisons is also committing to reducing its wider 'Scope 3' emissions across its entire own-brand supply chain by 30 per cent by 2030 and is already working with suppliers to support them in this.
