Quiz has introduced a range of new sustainability initiatives as it looks to reduce energy consumption and its environmental footprint across the business.
The initiatives will see Quiz switching to 100% carbon free renewable energy at its head office, distribution centre and 67 stores across the UK and Ireland.
The introduction of 100% renewable energy will save over 900 tonnes of carbon each year, with the figure increasing through the introduction of other smaller initiatives, such as switching to zero carbon paper and carbon neutral water dispensers.

The fashion retailer has also taken steps to drive down its environmental impact by reducing the amount of waste produced across its supply chain.
In addition, it has launched 100% recycled and recyclable bags for all ecommerce orders and in-store purchases and introduced more stringent recycling practices such as the diversion of almost 60 tonnes of material from landfill each year and the recycling of more than eight tonnes of wood each year.
In a further move, Quiz will also be launching a sustainable fashion range in 2022 which will be available exclusively online.
Sheraz Ramzan, Chief Commercial Officer at Quiz, said: “Following a period of research, we are really pleased to announce the sustainability measures we have put in place to further minimise the company’s environmental footprint. These measures are part of our wider responsibility strategy, and by no means signal the end of our efforts. We will be continuing to look at how we can improve and are excited to build on this good progress into 2022.”
