The supply chain is at the heart of the retail industry. As a global retail business with a key role to play in reducing the impact of CO2 emissions and energy consumption, SPAR is continuously adapting its operations. At SPAR, we strive to reduce our environmental footprint whilst 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 DC level. Further positive impacts have been achieved through close cooperation with preferred suppliers, who offer environmentally friendly retail solutions.
CO2 Emission Reduction
With SPAR operating stores and DCs, we recognise that we have a responsibility to reduce our CO2 emissions across the full supply chain. New developments are closely monitored, and important changes are being driven across our logistical operations as well as at DC and store sites.
In terms of logistics, continuous adaptation and implementation of new innovations help SPAR to optimise the efficiency of our transport and resource collection processes. Similarly, renewable sources have allowed for more sustainable transport solutions to be adopted within our transport fleets. Through this combination, SPAR can not only reduce time on the road but also work towards greener deliveries.
The reduction of CO2 emissions has become an important aspect in sustainable building designs and processes. Across SPAR markets, SPAR Partners are looking to integrate sustainable materials and technologies that improve efficiency and reduce emissions.
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 energy 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. SPAR preferred suppliers play a pivotal role in the development of these technologies and the implementation of these solutions.
