Asda has expanded its supply chain sustainability programme to more than 300 companies and is introducing a new tool to measure their efforts to reduce their environmental impact.

A sixth of its supplier base had already signed up to its Sustain and Save Exchange programme, which launched last year. The retailer said that its entire roster of fresh, frozen and chilled suppliers had now agreed to join the programme, which it claimed had so far saved £13m through sustainability innovations.

The collaboration, overseen by sustainability experts 2degrees, will see companies including Arla, Warburtons and Young’s share ideas on sustainability via an online portal. 2degrees is also launching a new tool next month that will report on the companies’ performances on energy, waste and water usage.

“This is all about collaboration,” said Asda’s head of corporate sustainability Julian Walker-Palin. “We can now help over 300 suppliers find efficiencies in energy, waste and water.”
