Building zero-carbon stores
The new Tesco Cabra store was officially opened last year in November, creating 150 jobs and marking the latest stage in Tesco’s 2011/2012 investment programme in Ireland.
As part of Tesco’s commitment to reduce its carbon footprint, Tesco Cabra is the first zero carbon supermarket in Ireland and the fifth within the Tesco Group worldwide.
The store features a host of cutting-edge, environmentally-friendly technologies, which help to maintain a zero carbon footprint from the store's operations.
Tesco's investment programme is creating 755 new jobs across the country. Construction work on the various projects is creating another 548 building jobs. The investment programme extends until summer 2012. Last year, Tesco created 825 jobs in Ireland and now employs 14,000 people in the Republic.
