Sainsburys' Climate Change Impact: F
Sainsburys currently does not power their corporate building using 100% green renewable energy. This means the electricity used contains a mix of electricity generated by non-renewable means. This may include fossil fuels, such as coal. Today there are many different electricity providers offering green generated renewable electricity.
Sainsburys' company website currently isn't hosted by an industry recognised green host. This means they power their data centre using 100% renewable energy. Switching to a web hosting provider that operates this way will help the internet, and Sainsburys becoming a green company.
Becoming carbon-free is one of many ways to become an eco company.

Sadly, we do not know a lot about what Sainsburys is doing when it comes to climate change. A combination of either providing little to no climate action goals or have provided information but have not specified when they will achieve such goals.
