The John Lewis Partnership has signed a deal to buy 100% renewable energy from small supplier SmartestEnergy.
The contract will start in January 2015 – running until March 2018 – and will provide power for more than 380 John Lewis and Waitrose sites.
Nigel Keen, Director of Property Services for the John Lewis Partnership said: “The Partnership aims to source sustainably across its supply chains and this agreement provides us with full transparency over where our energy is coming from.
“Working with SmartestEnergy means we can support independent renewable generators and contribute to progress towards the UK’s target for 15% of energy demand to be met from renewable sources by 2020.”
