J Sainsbury's aims and objectives Their business is now focused very much on Sainsbury's Supermarkets and Sainsbury's Bank following the sale of Shaw's and JS Developments during the year. Three key priorities and six goals were developed in 1998. These are based on those environmental impacts that are considered the most significant for the business. No change to priorities or goals has been seen to be necessary as the business has not altered since the priorities and goals were formulated. Priorities: * Reduce the environmental impact of products. * Reduce CO2 emissions. * Reduce waste. Goals: * Environmental Management System: Manage the significant environmental effects over which we have direct control and seek to influence those of our customers and suppliers who reduce the impact our organisation has on the environment. ...read more.


* Energy: In our own operations, reduce CO2 emissions from energy for building services through responsible energy sourcing, minimising demand and efficient consumption. * Waste: Reduce the waste we produce from our operations, recover as much as is practical, ensuring the remainder is disposed of responsibly. Encourage our customers to recycle where appropriate. * Property and store operations: Develop, design and operate our stores and distribution centres to reduce their environmental impact whilst achieving customer satisfaction and business growth. These goals guide the business in implementing its policy to reduce the impact of our own organisation through a programme of continuous improvement. ...read more.


Cost savings may also be used to improve environmental controls within the business. Some of the examples of projects that have shown cost savings and environmental benefits in the last year are: * Energy savings projects have saved approximately �11/4 million in the last year and are projected to save �3.2 million in the current year. * The reduction in distance travelled, thanks to the efficiency improvements in Sainsbury's supply chain in the last year, has delivered a saving of approximately �71/2 million as well as nearly 4,800 tonnes of CO2 by Sainsbury's HGV fleet. * The increase in donation of food past its display-until date to charities has saved nearly �300,000 in waste disposal costs. ...read more.
