Suma Wholefoods joins Business Declares

Suma Wholefoods has taken a firm stance on the climate emergency by joining Business Declares.

The Yorkshire-based worker-owned co-op has become the latest member of the rapidly-growing network of businesses who acknowledge the climate and ecological emergency.

Suma Wholefoods is Europe’s largest equal pay co-operative and of the UK’s leading vegetarian wholesalers and brands.

On joining Business Declares, Suma shared that they aim to reach Net Zero by 2035 by reducing their emissions and improving their impact on biodiversity.

Ben Pearson, Sustainability Reporting coordinator at Suma, says: “Here at Suma we have always taken our commitment to people and the planet seriously. As a workers co-op, we have tried hard to put environmental and social goals at the heart of everything we have done since we were founded over 40 years ago.

“We recognise we are facing a climate catastrophe and that the world around us is rapidly changing. There is a real and unpredictable risk of the current systems that maintain our planet will shift, driving catastrophic changes in our environment and, with it, insecurity and conflict. That’s why we are declaring a climate and ecological emergency and adding our voice to Business Declares, a fast-growing network of purpose-driven businesses who are committed to specific and meaningful actions to make a difference.”
