Greggs launches first eco-shop to help it trial in-store sustainable initiatives

Food-to-go retailer Greggs has launched  its first eco-shop as a test bed for future in-store sustainability initiatives.

The shop in Northampton’s Great Billing will allow the retailer to test new solutions and initiatives to help reduce the environmental impact of its operations. Any successful ideas and technologies will then be rolled out across Greggs’ wider shop estate.

Tony Rowson, property director at Greggs, said: “We’re delighted to have launched our first eco-shop, in line with our Greggs Pledge and net zero commitments. As a responsible business we have a duty to our customers and to our planet to change the world for the better. Our new eco-shop format gives us a platform to develop and test solutions to minimise our impact on the environment by cutting our waste, energy and water usage.”

The company’s sixth “Greggs Pledge” involves building shops of the future with a commitment to have 250 Greggs stores featuring some elements from the eco-shop format by the end of 2022. The solutions being trialled this year include recyclable flooring, cistern-less and air assisted toilets, eco-ovens, heat pump air curtains and solar control glass.

Rowson added: “As we continue to trial new and innovative sustainability initiatives we look forward to making real progress in our goal to becoming a greener Greggs.”
