Remove. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
We're serious about packaging and plastic waste. We're taking action to: Remove it where we can. Reduce it where we can't. Reuse more. Recycle what's left.
Our latest achievements
In 2018, we said we'd remove the hardest-to-recycle plastics from our packaging by the end of 2019. We met this target for Tesco own-brand products. Now, we're working with other brands to do the same. Also, in 2019, we set an aim to remove a billion pieces of plastic from our business by the end of 2020. We successfully hit this target and our work goes on to remove plastic wherever possible. We believe unnecessary plastic has no place in our business.
What other great things are we doing?
