Sainsbury’s plans to check out from its Holborn head offices and move to a more eco-friendly spot in King’s Cross, which it reckons will chop carbon emissions by up to 40%.
It’s still some time away, sadly, as relocation is only due in 2011, but good news nonetheless. Details remain sketchy, with talk of plans to use “renewable energy technologies”, “energy efficient building designs” and so on. This from the firm’s release:
The development will also include roof-mounted wind turbines, photovoltaics (solar cell technology), ground source heat pumps and solar thermal systems for generating hot water.
