The company is now half way through the plan and reports that 39 of the 100 commitments are already completed and of these, 24 commitments have been extended to cover more ambitious targets. Its key achievement on climate change has been to reduce CO2 emissions in the company's stores, offices, warehouses and delivery vehicles by nearly 100 000 tonnes, which is an 18% decrease on its 2006/7 baseline, despite extending trading space by 10%.
