VISION 2025+ GOALS

DEFINITION OF THE GOAL

Source 100% of our grid electricity from renewable sources by 2030.
 

WHY WE SET IT

As part of our climate change risk adaptation and mitigation efforts, we need to transition to clean electricity sources over time.
 

HOW WE ARE GOING TO ACHIEVE IT

We aim to achieve this goal by, as far as possible, installing solar panels on our own head office buildings and distribution centres; through renewable contracts in our Australian and New Zealand operations; and by working with landlords across the Group to access renewable energy installed in our leased store locations.
 

CHALLENGES WE FACE

In Africa, most of the electricity currently available is obtained from coal, and in Australia from coal and gas. In addition, there are currently no renewable energy contracts in South Africa, wheeling is not allowed, and the installation of or sharing in renewable energy generated by the building or mall where our stores are located is subject to negotiation with the landlord.
