Energy Efficiency WINNER: Sainsbury’s


Utilities are Sainsbury’s single largest controllable cost after wages, which is why recognising best practice in energy efficiency is a critical part of the organisation’s management strategy


In January 2012, Sainsbury’s success-


fully met its energy target to reduce CO2 emissions by 25% per square foot of sales area, three months ahead of schedule. This achievement is a result of Sainsbury’s energy efficiency programme, which delivers tailored solutions to stores result- ing in sustained reductions.


As part of the organisations energy management strategy, the programme’s aim is to set a store’s energy use at the optimal level for its size, equipment type and sales pattern. Branded RESET, this retrofit pro- gramme focuses on Sainsbury’s existing estate which comprises of 1,000 stores


and looks to achieve energy savings in the main areas of refrigeration (40% of store use) lighting (20%), heating and cooling (20%), bakery (10%). In March 2012, RESET completed its fifth year and has changed the way the company works with contractors and


how it engages with colleagues to save energy.


“It reinforces the value of good main- tenance to achieve sustained results” the company says.


Since its introduction, RESET has deliv- ered over 570 supermarkets and 250
