Sainsbury's opens new eco-friendly store

Sainsbury’s has opened a new eco-friendly store in Leek that features energy efficient LED lighting.

Sainsbury's opens new eco-friendly store

It is the first supermarket to be fitted with GE Lighting’s Lumination Linear Suspended lighting, which includes daylight sensors to optimise natural daylight and delivers a 59% lighting energy saving.

Sainsbury’s said the lighting also provides an enhanced shopping experience for its customers, with uniform light across the store and less glare from the flooring.  

Paul Crewe, Sainsbury’s head of sustainability, said: "We originally trialled the world-first installation of the new LED system in one of our local convenience stores in Scotland late last year and the initial findings were so positive that we decided to install it in our new Leek supermarket.

"We will be monitoring its performance closely over the coming months as a potential technology for carbon reduction in our stores."

The new Leek store also features a biomass boiler to heat the store and hot water, rainwater harvesting, natural refrigeration for fridges and freezers, recycling facilities and zero food waste to landfill.
