The supply chain is at the heart of the retail industry and as a global retail business with a key role to play in reducing the impact of CO2 emissions and energy consumption, SPAR is adapting its operations. At SPAR, we strive to reduce our environmental footprint whilst still providing our customers with the excellent service and quality they expect.
Many SPAR Partners have already taken steps to reduce their environmental impacts, implementing the latest technological innovations in their logistical operations and at store and Distribution Centre (DC) level. Further positive impacts have been achieved through close co-operation with preferred suppliers, who offer environmentally-friendly retail solutions.
CO2 Emission Reduction
With SPAR Partners operating stores, warehouses and DCs, we have a responsibility to reduce our CO2 emissions across the full supply chain. In terms of logistics, opportunities have arisen for optimising the efficiency of our transport and resource collection processes thanks to the continuous adaptation and implementation of new innovations, which help to reduce CO2 emissions.
Some SPAR Partners have also started implementing sustainable initiatives in building designs and processes, integrating sustainable and efficient technologies and materials.
At SPAR, we are continuously looking to integrate sustainable solutions in our operations. Our commitment extends beyond the reduction of CO2 emissions, with SPAR Partners looking at minimising the consumption of energy and the reduction of waste. Across the globe, SPAR Partners adopt energy-saving equipment in their stores and warehouses, ranging from innovative refrigeration and lighting solutions to solar panel installations.
