Supermarket chain Tesco is planning to run quarterly meetings with around 70 new green champions from across stores and head office as part of its sustainability ambitions.

A kick-off conference – held at the New Connaught Rooms in London – was a chance to "get some excitement going", said Tesco’s events manager Kate Conway.

BBC Radio 4 presenter and climate change expert Dr Gabrielle Walker addressed Tesco staff at the event on 25 November before they took part in a team-building exercise run by Bluehat UK.

"Bluehat are one of our preferred suppliers and they came up with a complex team-building exercise, which was really engaging," added Conway.

Bluehat used its team-building game Eden – which focuses on CSR challenges – to help Tesco enforce its message.

Bluehat event consultant Jay Saxton said that bespoke "trump cards" were created for Tesco to ensure the game met the retailer’s objectives.

"If everyone can participate, then everyone is engaged," she added.
