El Corte Inglés reinforces its commitment to sustainability
What: El Corte Inglés shows once again its commitment to sustainability with four environmental and Circular Economy projects.
Why it is important: All these actions are part of El Corte Inglés's commitment to bond with society and the environment, as well as the spirit of closeness that it maintains with the concerns of citizens.
Zero Waste: The waste management system certified by AENOR will be implemented in all company’s centres and logistics platforms (as of today, 51 in Spain and 4 in Portugal).
Towards Zero Emissions: The company has set out to offset the carbon emissions it produces, with the aim of reaching zero emissions by 2050. 100% of the energy consumed by the company has a certified renewable origin.
Electric Mobility of Customers: To reduce the carbon footprint of its customers, the company has implemented more than 300 electric vehicle charging points in its car parks, becoming the largest private parking in this category.
Sustainable Packaging: 100% of the plastic bags in the supermarkets of El Corte Inglés are made of recycled raw material and are also reusable. The company aims to reduce its plastic footprint by 30% by 2025.
