Storefront: Greenhouse Gas Reduction
INCREASING OUR SIZE. REDUCING OUR FOOTPRINT.
We conduct a yearly greenhouse gas inventory by collecting information on our total building space, the amount of kilowatt-hours we use, the amount and type of refrigeration used in our stores, gallons of fuel used by our transportation fleet, and more.
Since conducting our baseline greenhouse gas inventory in 2007, we’ve added more than 9.5 million square feet to our overall operation. Concurrently, we’ve lowered our CO2 emissions per square foot by 12.9%. With this kind of result, there’s no denying our stores, warehouses, and offices are more energy efficient.
