As a bit of a retail historian, I am fascinated by past promises and how they panned out. This is an extract from The Independent from almost 7 years ago - a Tesco 10-Point Plan:
The 10-point action plan
Tesco promises to...
1 - Halve the average energy used in all Tesco buildings by 2010 compared with the year 2000.
2 - Double the amount customers recycle at stores by 2008.
3 - Make all carrier bags degradable from September and use 25 per cent fewer bags over next two years.
4 - Put nutritional labelling on all own-brand products by spring 2007.
5 - Help educate parents about healthier food for their children.
6 - Get 2 million people running, cycling or walking in sponsored events leading up to 2012 Olympics.
7 - Be a quieter neighbour by cutting the number of deliveries to Express convenience stores.
8 - More consultation with local communities before building new stores from 2007.
9 - Make it easier for small suppliers to gain access to Tesco.
10 - Sell more local products than any other retailer and introduce regional counters into stores.
Wonder how that went!
