Together to Zero sets out Coles’ ambition to reduce its impact on the environment, outlining its aspiration towards zero emissions, zero waste and zero hunger. We will work together to bring about change in these areas, with high expectations for ourselves and the broader community.
We understand our responsibility to minimise our environmental footprint and to show leadership in protecting our planet and climate. We are committed to addressing the impacts of climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by responsibly accelerating the decarbonisation of our operations and direct supply chains. We have a commitment to be powered by 100% renewable electricity by the end of June 2025.
We’re working with industry partners, suppliers and customers to increase food security, reduce waste and overall, conserve our valuable resources. We recognise the role we can play in reducing packaging and food waste.
We’re working together with charities and our partners towards zero hunger. This encompasses our commitment to donate unsold, edible food from our supermarkets and distribution centres to food rescue organisations, and the support we provide in times of need, including funds and food as part of disaster relief.
