 全商品に製造から輸送までのCO2排出量を表示する計画を打ち出した大手スーパーのTESCO。これ以外にも再生可能エネルギーや省エネ商品の取り扱いなど、スーパーとしての温暖化効果ガス削減に向けての対策を打ち出すということで、ビジネスにかかわるすべてについてCO2削減を重視する方針とのことです。

 空輸など、大きなエネルギーを消費する商品の採用をさけ、地産池消も重視し、米市場で好調な有機野菜などの取り扱いにも重点を置くとのことです。将来的には、日本などの欧米以外の市場にもCO2削減への総合的な取り組みを前面に打ち出すことで新たなビジネスモデルの構築に挑むということです。ただし、具体的なタイムテーブルは明記されていません。当初は計算だけでも結構な作業量となります。ただ、いったん決めて動き出せば、消費者に新たな商品情報を提供することでより大きな信頼を獲得する可能性があり、注目されます。(t_t)

TESCO / Sir Terry Leahy -TESCO, CARBON AND THE CONSUMER,18th January 2007

"..........
THE KNOWLEDGE TO CHOOSE
The Carbon Count
To create a mass movement in green consumption we must provide better information.
Clear information about the carbon cost of the products we buy will enable customers to make effective green choices. Customers want us to develop ways to take complicated carbon calculations and present them simply.
We will therefore begin the search for a universally accepted and commonly understood measure of the carbon footprint of every product we sell ・looking at its complete lifecycle from production, through distribution to consumption.
It will enable us to label all our products so that customers can compare their carbon footprint as easily as they can currently compare their price or their nutritional profile.
Everyone here can see how this could open up even more exciting avenues. Armed with this information the customer is really in charge. And we can help our customers in so many ways ・for example through Tesco Clubcard and Tesco.com we can make it easy for them to measure and reduce their carbon footprint in real time ・day-by-day and week-by-week.
A Carbon Currency
..........
Over the next year, we will build new environmental stores in the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Turkey, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and hopefully in China and Japan too.

This will be a practical and direct way of building on what we have learned as a business, and stimulating low-carbon technology in developing countries around the world.

It is by being focused, working hard and investing more than 」65m last year alone in lower-carbon technology that we will achieve our energy reduction target two years early. Over the next five years we will spend more than 」500m in reducing our energy use.

The Stern Review explains how important it is to develop new low-carbon technologies.

We have learned from our experience that there is often a frustrating gap between being able to identify the technology that is needed ・whether on low-energy lighting or lower-emissions refrigeration ・and being able to purchase and apply that technology commercially. We will work with our suppliers to reduce and hopefully eliminate this gap.

Our Sustainable Technology Fund created last May established an additional ring-fenced 」100m to help to close that gap. To support low-carbon technologies that are not yet fully economically viable. To improve their application so that they become commercially viable.

We are investing in, or examining seriously, a number of technologies:

We have installed 10 wind turbines, and have sought planning permission for many more. We are looking closely at the next generation of vertical axis turbines.
We have shown at Swansea that combined heat and power has a practical application in our sector, and plan another 10 plants this year.
We are developing a gasification solution to turn our food waste into clean, sustainable power.
We are investing in a straw-fired generator at Goole, delivering biomass combustion, steam cycle and steam turbine power.
We also made a significant investment in a new biodiesel plant at Immingham.
