Tesco strengthens sustainable commitment in China

The world’s third largest retailer Tesco held the 2nd Sustainable Development Forum of Retail Industry.

"Saving energy and cutting emission have become major goals for retail industry," Tim Ashdown, President and CEO of Tesco, said during the forum.

"To operate in an environment-friendly way, Tesco has built a large green distribution center in Zhejiang Province and used carbon dioxide instead of freon as freezing medium. In addition, our company has joint hands with suppliers and customers to cut carbon emission in supply chain, building a role model for the industry," he said.
