Energy & Emissions
Our large portfolio of stores, warehouses and food production plants are significant contributors to our energy and carbon impacts. With a large, complex supply chain, we also produce carbon emissions via the products we sell and suppliers we partner with to procure and manufacture these products.
Reducing our climate impacts is a key part of our sustainability commitment. We have a history of reducing carbon emissions intensity through investments in energy efficiency, renewable energy and refrigerant emissions measures. We continue to expand the implementation of existing solutions that have proven successful, as well as identify and evaluate new innovative technologies and collaborations that have the potential to further improve sustainability.
Our 2020 Sustainability Goals reflect current commitments to reduce energy and carbon impacts from our business. In 2020, Kroger established a new science-based greenhouse gas reduction goal for our business to guide our climate impact reduction work into the next decade.
