Actions and Targets

Actions and Targets

For each pillar of our plan we have defined a number of priority Targets and Actions. These Targets have been developed to apply to all our retail businesses across the Tesco Group, including Republic of Ireland, Central Europe and Asia. With the majority of our customers being in the UK, implementation will begin with the UK business operations. We will take learnings from the UK and consult with expert stakeholders within each of our international markets to develop appropriate plans and country specific timelines.
