Tractor Supply Updates Emission Goals

Tractor Supply Company, a rural lifestyle retailer, announced the reduction of its Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions intensity per million dollars of revenue and per square foot by 18.8% and 6.2%, respectively and reported scope 3 GHG emissions for the second consecutive year.

In 2021, the company committed to net zero emissions by 2040 and to reduce carbon emissions from its operations 20% by 2025 and 50% by 2030.

In the next phase, Tractor Supply will increase efforts to procure renewable energy and continue investments in energy efficiency and cleaner technologies. 

To avoid future emissions, the company will incorporate better design in both stores and distribution centers and also enhance its Scope 3 focus with greater transparency and reduction efforts. This includes new vendor engagement that will allow the company to replace modeled Scope 3 data with actual supplier energy intensity data while identifying interventions to drive down value chain emissions. 

“Since we first launched our Stewardship Program in 2008, Tractor Supply has been on a journey of continuous improvement to drive positive environmental and social change within our company and our communities,” said Hal Lawton, President and CEO of Tractor Supply, in a statement. “The release of our 2021 Sustainability Report tells the comprehensive story of our progress toward our ESG commitments.”
