Decathlon commits to reducing CO2 emissions
French sporting goods retailer Decathlon, owner of the Caperlan fishing tackle brand, has committed to reducing its CO2 emissions by 20% versus last year. It has also pledged to eliminate single use plastic.
The company, which has almost 2,100 stores across 56 countries, is taking a significant step towards its objective by announcing the official end of bagging in the picking process at its European logistics centre in Rouvignies, northern France. The move has also improved productivity in the picking department by six per cent.
Since taking the decision, the use of more than a million single use bags has been avoided and more than 10.6 tons of CO2 equivalent has been saved.
