With over 140 shops, we have a responsibility to understand the impact our business and shops have on the environment.
We’re committed to using our influence to build a more sustainable future on the high street and every other aspect of our business.
We have joined the British Retail Consortium’s commitment to be a Net Zero Carbon business by 2040.
To help us find the best opportunities for positive change, Small World Consulting produced a detailed report on the Timpson Group’s greenhouse gas footprint.
The report includes an assessment of the emissions produced by Johnsons Cleaners from 1st January to 31st December 2019: the last full year our business operated as usual before COVID-19.
The report found that a significant portion of Johnsons' carbon footprint came through the use of gas and electricity, due to the amount of large machinery our shops use on a daily basis.
The Timpson Group's entire GHG footprint was calculated at 60,470 tonnes tcO2e. Johnsons was responsible for approximately 94% of all gas consumption and 45% of all electricity consumption, due to the large amounts of energy used by our machinery.
Although the dry cleaning process will always involve large machinery, it’s our mission to find new ways to improve and implement fresh energy-saving strategies. This is what we’re doing to tackle our carbon footprint and ensure our business is less of a burden on the environment.
