Why It Matters to Us

Waste is a key source of carbon emissions that we aim to reduce. We acknowledge that we produce waste across our various business units, including packaging, paper, plastics, metals, glass, electronic, and organic food waste. We also create large amounts of material waste during new store openings and renovations. Our goal is to be aware, so we can work to reduce. Although waste is inevitable, we aim to promote circularity and practice the 7Rs -  rethink, refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle, and rot to reduce waste from ending up in landfills or polluting our natural environments whenever possible.

Key Strategies

01

Awareness & Education - Train and instill the habit of the 7Rs -  rethink, refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle, and rot among our stakeholders 

02

Apply the 7Rs - Reduce our waste across all business units by applying the 7Rs and partnering with relevant waste service providers for a more robust waste management approach.

03

Audit, Measure, & Improve - Understand the waste we produce and work to troubleshoot our waste management process to reach our waste reduction goals.
