Every little helps on the path to zero carbon
WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH TESCO
In 2017 Tesco Ireland committed to becoming a zero carbon retailer by 2050, aligning its ambitions with the Paris Climate Agreement. The Company has since committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2035. To help achieve its ambitious carbon reduction targets the Company partnered with ESB Smart Energy Services to procure and install a variety of energy efficient upgrades, and provide ongoing energy monitoring and carbon accounting.
“Our partnership with ESB Smart Energy Services is helping us stay on-track to achieve our net zero carbon targets, and improve the customer experience without any disruption.”
– Ian Logan, Retail and Distribution Director, Tesco Ireland
With 151 stores across Ireland, Tesco Ireland needed to take significant action to reduce its energy consumption, while maintaining service and comfort for colleagues and customers. The retailer also needed a way to track carbon savings, monitor return on investment and identify areas for further improvement on an ongoing basis.
ESB’s Smart Energy Services has already delivered projects for more than 300 large businesses across Ireland and the UK. Our customers includes Medite Smartply, the Dublin Airport Authority, ABP and Ardagh Glass amongst many others.
