Sainsbury's Supermarkets Limited Key Developments

SAINSBURY'S to Slash 500 Jobs

Sainsbury's Opens First Combined Pharmacy and Convenience Store

Sainsbury's is opening a combined convenience store and community pharmacy on a hospital site. The new store at Guy's Hospital near London Bridge will employ 25 and offer a broad range of convenience merchandise for patients and visitors using the hospital. The new store will be open from 7 am to 11 pm, seven days a week.

Sainsbury's Agrees £200 Million 'Green Loan' with Lloyds Bank and Rabobank

Sainsbury's has taken out a 'first of its kind' corporate loan structured purely to invest in carbon reduction and sustainability projects. The supermarket has agreed a £200 million 'green loan' with Lloyds Bank and Rabobank to fund clean energy generation, energy efficiency and water saving projects over the next two to three years. While green bonds are increasingly widespread, Sainsbury's said the creation of a conventional corporate loan underpinned by environmental commitments was a market first. The use of the loan will be independently measured and monitored by a third party.
