View Full Report

The Report sets out Tesco’s policies on social, environmental and ethical issues and performance across the Tesco Group over the past year. For the first time it includes Group-wide KPIs for the next year, reflecting Tesco's increasingly international business.

In his introduction CEO Sir Terry Leahy describes why in a recession it is vital that business continues to invest in communities and in tackling the key challenge of our time – climate change.

The Report reveals that Tesco:

 Created 24,000 jobs around the world, including a focus on employing the long-term unemployed in the UK
 Donated £57 million to good causes around the world - over 1.9 per cent of pre-tax profits
 Continued to show leadership in tackling climate change, by driving forward a programme on carbon labelling and opening their first new format environmental store in Cheetham Hill, which has a 70 per cent lower carbon footprint than an equivalent store built in 2006 and will be a model for building stores from now on.
