Supermarket chain to go 100% LED

LED – Energy Efficient Lighting

 

Sainsbury’s has announced its commitment to become the first supermarket chain in the UK to adopt LED energy efficient lighting across all 450 stores by 2020.

The retailer predicts that installing over 250,000 LED across its sites, could reduce its annual lighting energy consumption by 58%, while reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by a further 3.4%. This move will form an important part of Sainsbury’s sustainability goals to reduce its impact on the environment and help it meet its 2020 carbon emission reduction targets. According to the company’s annual report for 2017, substantial progress has already been made with a 11.6% fall in electricity usage since 2005, despite an increase in store space of 54.2%.

Paul Crewe, Head of Sustainability, Energy, Engineering and Environment at Sainsbury’s, said: “At Sainsbury’s we’re committed to lowering the carbon emissions of our stores, so we’re proud to be the first supermarket to switch our large stores entirely to LED lighting.”
