Central to our identity is a genuine commitment to environmental sustainability. From lowering our greenhouse gas emissions to recovering food that can go to those in need instead of the landfill, we care deeply about reducing our resource footprint while providing our customers with local, organic, and other sustainable food choices. We will continue to set environmental goals in the future that build upon our achievements to date.
We take very seriously the effect that our operations has on climate, as well as the risks to our business that come with a rapidly changing climate. We continually monitor and evaluate risks to our business stemming from climate change and are in the process of developing plans to mitigate some of these effects.
We believe there is a need for a systemic approach to sustainable packaging and recycling in our society and economy. We actively participate in industry working groups to share best practices and explore innovative packaging and reuse solutions.
We are committed to eliminating waste and fighting hunger in our communities. Our goal is to become a “Zero Waste” company – that means 90% or more of our waste is diverted from the landfill.
