Our sustainability colleagues in Property scoop more recognition

Not only were we the first retailer in 2008 to sign up to WRAP’s zero construction waste to landfill pledge but we’re already seeing real results on the ground. This is great for the environment but, as you would expect from Asda, it also saves us money that we then use to lower prices for our customers.

The key colleague behind this initiative is Katie Hindle who gives us an insight in the vblog above. Katie and the team won “Highly Commended” in the Global Retail Leisure Industry Awards for diverting all construction waste from landfill during the building of our Gorseinon store in Wales – the first retailer to do this in the UK.

The competition was tough and global as we were up against projects in Abu Dhabi as well as the UK. Well done to Katie and to our partners, ISG Pearce.
